dc.description.abstractMönghöljei is an ordinary countryman who likes singing. Most of his songs were learnt from his maternal grandmother and uncle. This song is about a girl’s lament over her not being able to marry her loved one due to arranged marriage. In this collection, there are 40 video recordings of Horchin Mongolian songs made during fieldwork in 2010 and 2011 respectively. The collection contains songs by bards and amateur singers as well as ordinary people. Although most of them are narrative songs, only a few of them are sung in the proper manner as they were in the past. Most of them are sung in fractions. There are also interviews about local knowledge of the narrative songs, the historical facts the songs are based on, the song characters, the occasions the songs are sung, different people’s attitudes towards the different style of singing, their ideas about the present endangered state of the songs, their longing to and difficulty of maintaining the tradition etc.en_GB
