 Tracking the "Living Book": doukhobor Song in Canada Since 1899
On January 27, 1899, the first Sunday after their arrival in Winnipeg, a group of newly arrived Doukhobor immigrant settlers gathered to sing and pray.
These were meant to illustrate the inner sources of Doukhobor strength and fortitude and featured the psalm that was reportedly sung when members of the sect were flogged for burning their firearms on June 30, 1895, an act of defiance against conscription as enforced by the tsarist authorities (Biriukov 1908, 23 1-32).
The ruthless denigration of all religious manifestations in Russia during the Soviet era (1917 to 1991) heightened the critical role of Canada's Doukhobors as carriers of the tradition and increased the need to salvage the legacy of Doukhobor singing before it disappeared altogether.
