Notes & Reviews:

Ballyk, HBDirect Owner, ExpeditionAudio reviewer
While working on the layout for our BIS 40th Anniversary feature, I came across this 'Nordic Light' title I knew was on my shelves, so I popped it in to spin. Gorgeous - if you love the sound of a fine string orchestra, you must hear these beautiful Scandinavian miniatures! If you don't love it, we'll take it back and give you a refund.
