Lorik (Quail) [Lorig]
Lorik (Quail) has a sweet solo introduction of a boy telling of his love for a girl he saw at the well, begging his mother to help. The second section is an exuberant four-part choral rendering of the happy village describing the wedding scenes and the feelings of the day. The two parts of this song were written by Grikor Mirzaian Suni separately. His son Gourgen (George) Suny put the two parts together to make a dramatic continuance form one to the other. Lorik is song # 30 of our 1997 CD recording, “Armenian Songs of Grikor Mirzaian Suni (1876-1939): Vocal Solos and Duets”.
