Edda: Myths From Medieval Iceland
Released: Jan 1999
Label: DEUTSCHE HARMONIA MUNDI
This soundtrack to the dramatic stage production Edda: Viking Tales of Lust, Revenge, and Family approximates the musical settings and philology of medieval Icelandic musicians, and at times comes across like Irish folk music, but much more minimal and somber. Explore an ancient culture and its values before the influence of Judeo-Christian worldviews.
