A sweet nordic Christmas
One of the things I like from this album is the home character that it has. Just two warm female voices, and few instruments: no big orchestras, not many instruments, only the essential to create together the two voices a warm domestic atmosphere. There are only two famous carols, all the other tracks, except for only two, were unknown to me. When I listen to this album, I imagine a Nordic house in the long Scandinavian nights, under the snow and with the family around the fire, listening to these carols.
All the songs have the typical character of the Nordic music, very different, for example, from the English carols. My favourite song is “Med glediraust og helgum hljom”, it is really fantastic for me.
I like the two voices very much, the sound they have is very warm and they sing in a very sweet way.
In this album you won’t find the triumphal and majestic character that you can find in many other Christmas albums. I suggest it to everybody who wants a quiet and sweet atmosphere for Christmas.more....
