CD Reviews

Fun with Vocal Chords
Allen Salyer | Troy, MI United States | 07/04/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Firstly, the song titles listed above aren't song titles at all, they are the titles of the CDs in the Swedish Folk Music series. Ancient Swedish Pastoral Music is music that comes from the vocal chords and lungs (and what powerful lungs they are), from the pastures and fields of Sweden. You'll hear an amazing variety of herding calls, sheep and goat calls, kulning (calling in a vibrato-free high register). There are horns from the meadows: willow bark horn, goat horn. Many of these recordings are remastering of classic radio folk music recorded in the 1950's and 1960's, but there are some more modern musicians like the amazing Lena Willemark (of the Nordic folk bands Frifot and Nordan). The CD closed with a 27 minute live concert recording featuring the vocals of Suzanne Rosenberg (R7), Agnetta Stulpe, Eva Rume, Ana Arunsson and Pella Jacokson. Not for everyone, but if you like the female voice stretched to the limits, give this a try."
