Third part of a wonderful film called The Miraculous Circumstance. In this third part folk song collecting is heard from the past to the present day, including his interest in Slovak music and his use of it in his own music and the vocal style hora lunga, female Alphorn playing and colanda singing. It is a fascinating look at what Bartok was trying to preserve and what the villages he collected in are like now. Also some more recent footage of local villagers singing and playing folk songs.
