	Well, I was thinking along the lines of laments, or slow airs;
	something somber that would fit the mood of a candlelight vigil.
	I am of course looking for melodies rather than lyrics, as I
	don't know a word of Russian (modulo a few suggestive phrases
	my brother taught me.)

	I'm used to Irish music, a genre with a huge amount of slow,
	tearjerking songs mostly about being stranded far from home,
	many of which are available online in massive ABC tunebooks.
	If anyone knows where to look for the Russian equivalent,
	I'd be very grateful.
