VA - Musica Sveciae - Folk Music In Sweden: Lockrop & Vallåtar - Ancient Swedish Pastoral Music (1995)


Ancient Swedish Pastoral Music was the name of the LP issued by the Swedish Broadcasting Corporation in 1966. It consisted of recordings of herding calls, kulning (singing or calling in a vibrato-free high register), the lur (birch bark horn), "playing pipes", goat horn and willow flute; and was made in the farm pastures in the provinces of Dalarna and Härjedalen between 1949 and 1964. Here are the same recordings presented, but now issued on CD. Those who nowadays perform herding calls and songs and play on the horn are also represented - by Lena Willemark, plus a live recording made at Stångtjärn at ehe 1995 Falun Folk Music Festival where Pelle Jakobsson were among the contributors.
