PLEASE NOTE:
Now the site is under eternal construction, but you can see some texts. It is an Internet mirror of my database with working materials.

Texts have no commentaries, so please look in original sources.

Graphic divisions (i.e. stanzas, parts etc) were dropped. Most of headlines were dropped too.

There are many typing errors. But sometimes it is an encoding problem, so please try to change it in your browser.
Maori and Hawai'ian texts are not included. Please see http://huapala.org/ and http://folksong.org.nz/

I am very grateful to David Meyer, Claire Moyse-Faurie, Konstantin Pozdnyakov, Albert Davletshin, Evgenia Korovina, Natalia Kolodkina, Yulia Naumova for help.
You can write to me about errors etc.: kozmin@gmail.com.
