Music

This Christmas journey through time and space incorporates reflections of musical traditions mainly from Northern Europe. It is a mixture of voices, of styles and languages — a polyphony of musical voices. The music ranges from deep calm to joyous dance and from philosophical depth to childlike naiveté, much like the message of this season itself.
