Notes & Reviews:

Offered as a special "2 for 1" price point, this collection contains the first international release on CD of a selection of Scandinavian songs originally released on LP as "Songs from lands of the midnight sun." The Decca recordings included here were all recorded within eight years and present Nilsson in magnificent voice. Perhaps known best as Brunnhilde on Solti's definitive "Ring" cycle, here you can hear the breadth of this legendary singer's artistry.
