From

Listen to some updated folksong arrangements, arrangements of medieval songs, and music that looks to other world traditions, all from Norway.  The updated folk comes to us from a collection of ballads, hymns, lullabies, sung by Trio Medieval, and we'll also hear Norwegian medieval song by Jan Garbarek & Agnes Buen Garnas.

Plus, there's an old Norwegian folk hymn – with mighty power chords on a church organ.  And more.
