White Night: Impressions of Norwegian Folk Music

A CD with Norwegian Folk Music

White Night: Impressions of Norwegian Folk Music

Berit Opheim Versto, Gjermund Larsen, Det Norske Solistkor, Grete Pedersen

The music on this CD falls within three categories

  • a set of lightly arranged renditions of Norwegian traditional music, featuring folk vocalist Berit Opheim Versto, and a Hardanger fiddle player, Gjermund Larsen.
  • a group of choral arrangements of folk songs/hymns
  •  a group of songs with a more contemporary sound

My favourite is “Med Jesus vil eg fara” sung to a folketune from Sunnmøre

Reviewers use word such as “Hauntingly beautiful, Fantastic” and describe it as a “unique style”
