After a too-long absence, we return to the extraordinary work of Anne-Lise Berntsen as she reinterprets the ancient music of her homeland. with a modern twist.

Preservation of this program is made possible by a generous grant in honor of Christie Callahan.

All of the music on this program comes from the recording Engleskyts from the Kirkelig Kulturverksted label (FXCD 136). It features Anne-Lise Berntsen, with Nils Henrik Asheim performing on the Holzhey organ in the cloister church of Weissenau.
