Edited by E. V. Gippius, this, and the other volumes in the series, are seminal works on Circassian musical lore. Some of the collected songs and chants are very ancient indeed. It is hoped that the other volumes in the series be made available online. The work of the team is very commendable in this regard, and, for what it is worth, this is a note of appreciation of their invaluable work.
