Hirundo Maris, Arianna Savall

Savall’s recording this one is infused with the same sweetness underscored with a strong musicality. In her first foray away from the familial record label, she joins with lutanist and singer Petter Udland Joansen for a series of traditional songs arching across the Nordic countryside. Her ethereal voice really has no match and with lineage such as hers, I am not surprised as she goes strength to strength. A little bit of drums to spice up the gentle rhythms from the harp, makes this my pick of the month.
