ABSTRACT
In folklore, the term "soldier's song" ["cântec de cătănie"] designates on the one hand songs of war, and on the other, conscription songs; considered as a literary form, they do not have their own melodies, but rather melodies belonging to non-occasional lyrical songs. The soldiers' songs from the Maramureş region that provide the analytical framework for this paper, are tied to the conscription ceremonial, i.e. the party held in honor of the young lads leaving for military service. While these songs share the same musical characteristics as other melody types in Transylvania, evidence has been found of another widely performed genre in the Maramureş region, the so-called hore nouă melodies, which have a strong regional flavor.
