The Song of the Volga Boatmen

The Song of the Volga Boatmen
is a genuine barge-haulers' shanty. Mily Balakirev, pianist and composer, famous for having promoted nationalism in Russian music, went around and collected folk songs and published them in a book.
Balakirev published The Song of the Volga Boatmen with only one verse (the first). The other two verses were added at a later date.

I've had this very version of the song on a music cassette for ages, and only today did I see what the singers in the Red Army Choir who performed it actually looked like. I like the lead singer's eyebrow action.
