voicing: TTBB | catalog number: SBMP 182 | price: $1.95
accompaniment: a cappella
Vance Wolverton: The last thing I expected to find in Estonia was Barbershop-style singing, but that is exactly what "Sulle Mulle" is. The infectious dotted rhythm of the soprano melody is underlaid by an equally infectious rhythmic ostinato in the alto parts. "Sulle Mulle" should be sung with great gusto and highly exaggerated pronunciation for optimal effect. Sing it in the original language, or use the excellent English version.
