Notes and Editorial Reviews

Developed over time by a group of specialists in Norse song techniques from surviving accounts of the period, SKÁLD is a vocal project inspired by Nordic mythology from the poetic Edda. The project originated when producercomposer Christophe Voisin-Boisvinet encountered a trio of talented singers whose voices had atypical timbres. Together they decided to breathe new life into the poetry of the ancient skalds, poets whose language – Old Norse – told stories of the Vikings and their gods.
