Virtual Choir – Softly, softly!

We invite you to enjoy the latest project presented by the Dainava Lithuanian Chorale!

Darius Polikaitis
We sincerely thank composer Leonidas Abaris for permission to record this wonderful setting of Henrika Aušrienė's poem. We also thank Nerija Čuplinskas, Vėjas Čuplinskas, Martynas Matutis, John McCortney and especially director Vytas Čuplinskas for the many hours of work! And of course, many thanks to the "Dainava" choristers. We miss singing together, but are grateful that we can at least share music in this way.

Let us linger in this festival of white.
Softly, softly ... Can you hear?
The frost on the brittle tree branches
sings a mournful nocturne.

Let us gather our frozen tears
and place them in our palms and into our hearts -
And give them warmth.
