Auld Lang Syne in Russian.

Last year I published a Russian version of Auld Lang Syne. Enjoy two more videos of the New Year's festive song in Russian.

The first is a clip from the 1973 Soviet film 'He Who Shies Hardship Never Finds Happiness' ("Горя бояться - счастья не видать".) It is sung by the Belorussian folk-pop group Pesnyary ("Песняры") who were part of the Russian folk revival at the time. Lead vocal is by Leonid Bortkevich, musical version by O.Yanchenko, Burns' lyrics translated by Samuil Marshak.

In this second clip from 2009 Auld Lang Syne is sung by the chamber choir of the Mary Republic Technical University (Mary-El is an autonomous republic within the Russian Federation.) The singing starts at 1:45 minutes into the video. Apparently this is from the choir's tenth anniversary celebration ceremony.
