Notes and Editorial Reviews

In Sweden the unbroken tradition of folk music has influenced both liturgical and classical music - and musicians! Gunnar Idenstam, concert organist with an international reputation, has previously explored folk music in various constellations. He has now designed a programme which combines traditional Christmas hymns, folk music and the immense sonic possibilities of a great church organ, in his own, highly original, arrangements. The disc comes in a double-folded digipak with full colour booklet including liner notes and song texts in Swedish and English, with an introduction also in German and French.
