Second Book Of Folk Songs
This book is more than a collection of songs. It is a completely satisfying recital programme presented by two consummate artists. As given by them on the concert platform these songs are things to dream of. Engel Lund takes each one and in a few pithy sentences cracks it like a nut and gives you the kernel. Then she sings it, breathing into its words and notes an unforgettable vitality. Her accompanist, Ferdinand Rauter, is in such accord with Engel Lund that during the actual singing his part is almost unnoticed. His musical settings provide a completely natural environment.
