Archive Recording of Ancient Finnish Songs
Stan Kotajarvi | Holt, MI U.S.A | 12/13/1999
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This rare recording is not for the casual listener, but is of particular interest to serious students of ancient Finnish culture and folklore. The recordings of several soloists and groups dating from the early 1900's(on wax cylinders) up to fairly recent times comprise the collection of songs. The sound quality varies considerably depending on the time of the original recording, but they probably represent the old chanting style of primitive song/poem singers as authentically as possible. No instruments accompany the singers."
