Overview

A collection of starkly beautiful Norwegian songs that blends the ancient hardingfele violin and an eschatological synthesizer on the same disc without a bump, thanks to the unnerving clarity of solo vocals in a class with the Latvian Dzintars and Bulgarian mystere recordings. Bottomless as a mountain lake, Pernille Anker's amazingly flutelike voice on "Bla Tonar Fra Lom" is matched by Kirsten Braten Berg's dark gift of narrative on the runic "Heiemo Og Nykkjen." Besides Hans Brimi's violin, Irish-plaintive one moment, Gypsy-fierce the next, skyblown reeds and keyboards inhabitat 19 sparse, mostly traditional compositions.
