Other Points of Interest and Links

The booklet notes are in English only and contain information on each of songs and their composers/arrangers as appropriate. Complete texts are also provided together with complete translations into English (the translation of Kolm mul oli kaunist sõna is by Krista Kaer). Although the Veljo Tormis work Kolm mul oli kaunist sõna is identified on the back of the jewel box and inside the CD booklet as an "Estonian folk song", it is still also correctly described in the CD booklet as having a text by Paul-Eerik Rummo with music by Veljo Tormis.
