ABSTRACT. Zlateva contends that the free rhythm of the doinas (parlando) and their movement (rubato), correspond somewhat to singing according to the taste of the performer who, in singing, lengthens or shortens the notes, speeding or slowing down the performance according to individual artistic mastery. Giurchescu reasons that Calus is a protection, healing, and fertility ritual, carried out at the Orthodox Pentecost Rusalii, seven weeks after the Orthodox Easter. Beissinger claims that Romanian oral epic includes a large body of heroic songs, fantastic and mythological songs, haiduc songs, and balladic narrative songs of a more lyric nature.
