The prevailing international image of Alpine music seems to involve grown men in short pants slapping out rhythms on each others' buttocks while dirndl-clad frauleins revolve nearby. Or beer hall oom-pah-pah bands, the mysterious zither of Anton Karras, The Sound of Music, yodeling, and the whale-like moan of a huge alphorn resonating through a mountain pass.

This is a really great album. While Christa Rhoden's review is excellent and she likely knows the ins and outs of the music better than I, she doesn't mention the eery and captivating initial track by Laurence Revey which is virtually worth the price of the album. Check it out.
