various Faroese artists
Kingosangur (Tutl Records)
This is a documentary recording of traditional unaccompanied religious vocal music of the Faroe Islands. Some of the songs date at least as far back as the 17th century. The recordings were collected by Danish musicologist and composer Karl Clausen in the 70s. Most are solo singers or small groups of two or three, performing in a style that, while related to other European and Nordic musical styles, has, over its many years of isolation on the Faroes, developed a unique sound and structure.

Jesus, vi dig nu kalde på
Min sjæ og ånd opmuntre dig

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.
