Estonian Runic Songs’ Database contains 85 490 texts of runic songs - nearly two thirds of all runic songs’ texts from the Estonian Folklore Archives at the Estonian Literary Museum. These are the oldest text recordings of Estonian runic songs (the text recordings were created in the 19th century and in the first decades of the 20th century). In addition to the runic songs, the database also has songs of transitional form and end-rhymed songs (about 6000). Texts are being added constantly.
