One must wonder what experiences and circumstance led to this director finding such an unusual piece to program.

Delos Concert Choir- Kasikivimang (The Grindstone Game)

from ChoirNerdsUnite YouTube channel
“Delos Concert Choir singing Kasikivimang (The Grindstone Game) from Kolm eesti mangulaulu ( Three Estonian Gamesongs) by Veljo Tormis.
The text translates: Chuffing chuffing now, chuffing chuffing now (men’s voices)
Keep on grinding mighty grindstones, pull those seeds sunder and heavy stone haves. Grind on, sister and sing and pay for pulling the seeds asunder. Cows I’ll give you as grinding wages. Folks at home want our fine milled flour and farmhands want grist milled coarsely while the meek maidens want hamdsome meal. Keep on grinding mighty grindstones, pull those seeds sunder and heavy stone haves.”
