The Medieval Ballad (2CDs)
29.99

The Nordic medieval ballad heritage is transmitted here through the medium of unique recordings. This double CD features 41 ballads, several in different versions. The medieval ballad is a CD remastering of the big documentary collection published by Swedish Radio in 1962. The CD version includes a much greater number of recordings from the Swedish Radio archives, with the addition of joculary ballads. The recordings were made in the 1950s and 1960s by Swedish and Finland-Swedish traditional singers. This set includes newly written articles on the words and tunes of the medieval ballads, and a separate booklet including the words of the ballads.

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
