One of my favourite recordings
Review By SB85633,May 2011

White Night is fast becoming one of my favourite recordings. The close harmonies of the choral arrangements interwoven with the gritty yet complementary sound of the solo fiddle are captivating to the ear. It is as if you can walk in the spaces between the notes as the chords move and change, which gives a very three dimensional feel. The voices are strong and clear, with little vibrato, or "without make up" as the conductor says in the album notes. Yet the voices blend remarkably, even though the choir is made up of "soloists" who do not always sing together.

I especially enjoy the tracks written or arranged by the fiddle player, such as Polonese, Gropen, Gjendines Badnlat, Solbonn, Solistvals. Yet the traditional melodies of the Norwegian hymns and folk tunes are a nice more....
