New Music from Norway

« previous episode | next episode »

Monday, March 18, 2013

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.
