This phenomenon of a common local wedding melody seems to be central to the whole genre of wedding songs and is spread among the wedding traditions of central, southern, and eastern Europe, sharing the name (svadobny hlas, svadbarski glas, svatovski glas) and similar features.-As one of the most stable elements of the wedding ceremony, recognized as such by village performers and remaining a part of the traditional repertoire even after the disappearance of the ceremonial moments they were formerly associated with, svadobne noty trigger a number of questions that have not been addressed in previous studies of wedding songs.

Socio-cultural, musical, poetical, and melodic-typological aspects of svadobne noty are explored in order to hypothesize on the functions these melodies may have played in the traditional wedding ceremony and in the context of patriarchal village culture, the principles and values of which were, in turn, embodied in and articulated through that ceremony as the most crucial family and community event.-Several functions of svadobne noty can be identified: (1) they are ritual means of confirmation of the matrimony- (2) they communicate meanings and messages accumulated in the semantic field of the traditional village wedding ceremony- (3) they symbolize the brides personal identity during the process of her change in status- (4) they manifest a local/regional identity of the community- (5) as melodic symbols of stability, they complement the transitional character of the wedding ceremony as a rite of passage- and (6) as the wedding ceremony was an arena for symbolic articulation of the principles of the patriarchal system, svadobne noty may have alleviated contradictions of the patriarchy.
