- Edition notes: This is a rescoring for mixed-choir where the original top voice (the secondary melody voice) is transposed down one octave and moved to the tenor voice. (The original being scored for male choir.) Thus the main melody voice (in the soprano) and the secondary melody moves not in parallel thirds as in the original but in sixths. The lyrics are printed both in the original Cyrillic and in translitteration to roman letters.
