Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

An inexpensive and, at 70 minutes, well-filled CD, beautifully recorded and pleasingly sung. Bodil Arnesen has a voice of great purity and radiance. She sings marvelously in tune, though some may find that in this repertoire she has something of a ‘little-girl’, innocent quality that does not give the whole picture. This perhaps is troubling when you are listening to all the songs straight off. Taken a group at a time, she will touch most hearts, particularly in the setting of Bjørnson’s Prinsessen and Det første mote. Erling Eriksen is an excellent accompanist.
