I'll let the other reviewers speak for the great great record.

I'll only add that I have the complete lyrics in both English and Hungarian, as well for Blues For Transylvania (Osz Az Ido), and

Marta Sebestyen/Muszikas (Dudoltam En)

and I will send them to anyone who asks as

an email attachment. I wouldn't want anyone else to go through

what I did to get them.

just ask, and you are very welcome. these are great records.

HASH(0x96c69e64) out of 5 stars Fiery, passionate music from a fiery, passionate country. 17 Nov. 2002
By Beeblebrox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Muzsikas are an ensemble from Budapest which grew out of the "Tanchaz" (literally, "dance-house") movement of the 1970s, wherein Hungarians began to take a keen interest in their folk heritage, learning to dance to and play older music.
In their purest form, Muzsikas consist of violins, a three-stringed upright bass which is played with a short bow, and the ethereal voice of Marta Sebyesten.
The music on "The Prisoner's Song" consists largely of Transylvanian folk compositions (remember, Transylvania was part of Hungary and, later, the Austro-Hungarian Empire until after World War I). Although all the songs were composed independent of each other, Muzsikas have arranged them in this album to tell a tale of sorts: a story of longing, love, and freedom.
The music is authentic, but never dated and not "modernized" to any extent whatsoever. Mihaly Csipos plays his fiddle with a passion and zeal which sounds in every note. Marta Sebyesten's singing is angelic, soaring to incredible heights, evoking the rich and proud history of Hungary.
All the lyrics to this song are in Hungarian, and neither a translation nor even the original lyrics are provided. However, all the words may be found on the web, and they're easily translated with the help of a Hungarian, or, with some effort, a Hungarian-English dictionary. But no dictionary is needed to feel the love and passion which went into making this album.
Contrary to what an earlier reviewer wrote, there's been no persecution of Muzsikas by the Hungarian government. Muzsikas are quite popular in Hungary, and the Tanchaz movement continues in full force. In fact, there is said to be one tanchaz in Budapest where Muzsikas play once a week and invite the public to jam with them. Fortunately for us and for music, Hungary is a completely free and open society, which allows Muzsikas to take lightning-quick tours of the US every few years.

Stunning. A revelation. Beyond the excellent musicianship the players display heart and spirit that
transcend labels.

The female vocalist brings to mind a wounded, bereft angel.

Buy it..

HASH(0x9627ac9c) out of 5 stars A range of haunting tunes 5 Jan. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this CD simply for the gorgeous song "Repulj, Madar, Rapulj" -- but found the entire thing interesting. I don't speak Hungarian and I know nothing of their folk music, yet I find the songs on this CD haunting and well-performed. I pull The Prisoner's Song from my CD rack at least once a week. If you're looking for something lovely and out of the ordinary that even white bread American tastes can appreciate; you won't be disappointed.
HASH(0x96203078) out of 5 stars beautifully done Hungarian folk music 26 Mar. 2016
By Marc A. Murison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Classic Hungarian folk music, and done *extremely* well. If you're a Hungarian music fan, BUY THIS ALBUM -- you'll be happy you did. The first song (Prisoner's Song) is simply beautiful -- worth the price alone.
