This 31st collection of Christmas Revels music derives from the uniquely robust traditions of the Nordic nations of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, where the winter solstice is marked with folkloric festivity and gorgeously haunting music. Listeners beware: all is not what it seems in wintry lands where the darkness is magical, mischievous ‘julenisser!’ Sung in six different languages by these incomparable soloists and choruses and accompanied by traditional instruments from the Northlands, The Gifts of Odin is our gift to you this holiday season! “Revels’ recordings evoke the true spirit of the winter holiday and puts us in touch with centuries of yuletide celebrating.” (The Utne Reader) “Revels Records has produced some of the liveliest Christmas albums I have ever heard!” (The Washington Post)
