The oldest notes in Denmark - a melody fragment in runic script with the text: »Drømte with en drom i nat om silke og ærlig pæel. ... in German: »I dreamed a dream tonight of silk and precious cloth!« The discovery of the melodies caused to play the old melodies again with historical musical instruments. The following were used: 3-hole and 6-hole bone flute, Gamshorn, Falster whistle, Oseberg-Lure, Västerbyhorn, drum, lyre, panpipe, horn whistle, etc. A small booklet describes the origin of the melodies and the musical instruments used at that time , The reconstruction of the melodies found and the replica of the historical musical instruments were given special consideration in the reproduction of the pieces of music. A total of 12 different melodies are played, some of which are sung. The songs and melodies date from the 10th-12th century.
The music of the Vikings is not known to us. Some musical instruments of that time were found during archaeological excavations. The Danish musicians Erik Axel Wessberg, Mogens Friis and Knud Albert Jepsen have tried to recreate this music with very old traditional melodies on reconstructed instruments.
Total playing time of a CD: : 20:07 minutes.
