Janavičienė (born in 1841). Stasys Paliulis wrote that there had even been a special parody created in which fun was made of the “clucking” by the hymn singers. The women would engage in a dialogue, as though they might be chickens, and would “cluck” a song: “čia tavo, čia mano, sudėsim abieju – bus tik mūsų dviejų” ‘this yours, this mine, put ‘em both, ours both’. Singer E. Bratėnaitė (born in 1852) described the events: “this was the way the fellers sang, laughing at the gals, who were singing the sutartinės” (LLIM: 413).].
„Kai pašidydavo, kad kaip vištos kudoja, tai iš vieno giedodavo” ‘When they got teased that they were clucking like chickens, then they’d sing as one’ [Pad. E. Janavičienė-Tamėnaitė, g.1841 m. Suvaizdžių k., 1936 m.].
