Album Review
Decca
Reviewed 2007-11-24 
Glorious vocal harmonies mark this wonderful collection of hymns, lullabies, and ballads. It’s the 10th anniversary for this Norwegian - Swedish female trio. Joined by percussion but it’s the solo voices that carry it all. You can’t go wrong with any track, they’re all beautiful, mostly down/midtempo. In keeping w/their name, all tracks have a medieval/Renaissance air & are all too short. I especially liked:

1. Slow intro then a midtempo round song.
3. Bright and joyous w/a dramatic melody.
4. Midtempo w/a festive air. The drum adds a nice, elegant touch.
7. A slow, quiet hymn. Gentle, reverent, really lovely.
8. Warm layers of voices/drum in a midtempo dance.
9. Driving, fluid & lyrical.
11. Gorgeous hymn w/fragile melody & lush voices. So elegant.
13. Starts slow, picks up into a waving, warm folk song.
14. Midtempo & celebratory, like a wedding banquet.
16. Slow, almost processional hymn w/a delicate air.
20. Downtempo & moving hymn w/those glorious harmonies.
