For this New Sounds, sample vocal works by the Norwegian singer/songpoet Synnøve Rognlien, some with Gregorian chant and flamenco singing. Also, listen to Anne-Lise Berntsen & Nils-Henrik Asheim, who combine Norwegian religious folksong and organ improvisation. Then there’s Gaelic soprano Nóirín Ní Riain and the monks of the Glenstal Abbey who recreate the medieval liturgy’s choral masterworks; hymns, laments, carols, and prayers. Plus music from Trio Mediaeval, Hildegard von Bingen, and more.
