SKRUK & MAHSA VAHDAT
I Vinens Speil

Kirkelig Kulturverksted FXCD 360 (2010)

13th and 14th century Persian poems by Rumi and Hafez, translated into Norwegian and set to arrangements of traditional Persian and new melodies, sung by Iranian female singer Mahsa Vahdat and Norwegian mixed-voice choir Skruk, with Tord Gustavsenís fluid piano, bass and percussion. Calmly beautiful melding of Norwegian church-traditional and Persian.
