Rosenfole: Medieval Songs from Norway

( 2 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Jan Garbarek is best known as a saxophonist, originator of a distinctive instrumental sound associated with the German ECM label, for whom he has played on dozens of solo and group projects. Ms. Gamas is a Norwegian singer who specializes in folk material. These popular songs, myths and legends have been given a completely contemporary treatment by Garbarek with synthesizers, hand drums, and a great variety of wind instruments. The result is an unforgettable record that is neither folk, ethnic, jazz, new age, or space music, but is simply an original and highly effective work of art. ~ Backroads Music/Heartbeats

    World class sound from Norway

    Agnes Buen Garnas is one of the outstanding vocalists in contemporary music. Her sound is a wonderful blend of folk with Broadway; dancing its way around the world and into your heart. This is a great example of the exciting things going on in world music. Anyone who enjoys quality vocals with tremendous instrumentation will enjoy this excellent recording.
