The Gifts of Odin: A Nordic Christmas Revels

The 31st collection of Christmas Revels music derives from the uniquely robust traditiions of the nordic nations of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, where the winter solstice is marked with folkloric festivity and gorgeously haunting music. Sung in six different languages by incomparable soloists and choruses and accompanied by traditional instruments from the Northlands, the music evokes the true sprirt of the winter holiday and puts us in touch with centuries of yuletide celebrating.
