Album Notes
The music on this album is connected to musicological ideas of how the Vikings might have related to music in terms of working with rhythm, melodies and harmonies built by a few tones. It is also an attempt to illustrate another vision of perception of how the music and the lyrics are working together in order to form a context for a deeper understanding of this period of time.
"Lyra fra Nord" are using three voices and two lyres. Rolf plays a lyre which is a replica of an archeological find from the English "Sutton Hoo" boat grave dated 630 CE. The lyre most probably originate from the area around Lake Mälaren in Sweden. Johns lyre is a replica of a so called "Kraviklyre". In 1904 the remains of a lyre was found on the Norwegian farm Kravik in Numedal, Norway. The lyre supposedly dates from around 1300 CE but as it has an archaic form, it is probably based on much older versions of a lyre.
This digital edition has 10 tracks. The physical CD has 16 tracks.
