Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Song weaving: The multivocal performance patterns of Lithuanian Sutartiné singers
by Raver, Debra Marie, M.A., Indiana University, 2014, 163; 1558015
Abstract (Summary)

This thesis explores the distinct two-part polyphonic patterning in Lithuanian Sutartines to reveal how singers shape and/or experience their songs as musical weaves. The findings are based on original fieldwork as well as old ethnographic sources, which are (re)examined and interpreted through the lens of metaphor as a methodology.
