Wintersongs by Kitka
Released: Dec 2003
Label: Magnatune
The Eastern European women's choir offers a refreshingly distinctive take on the seasonal album, focusing on songs of winter (and the holidays, including pre-Christian traditions) from the region. It's a spine-tingling smorgasbord of traditional songs and carols that evokes a range of moods from angelic choir ("Domnulet Si Domn Din Cer") to rollicking, meter-shifting folk dance ("Zamuchi Se Bozha Majka") to prayerful meditation ("Otche Nash"). Equal parts folk archive and gorgeous fireside soundtrack best served with a mug of glintwein, it's also a showcase of the group's power and grace.
