“What is the likelihood that hymns from the time of Pietism would resonate with progressive free musicians in Austin, Texas? Particularly when they are sung in a language that feels distant, even to Norwegians. On this album the miraculous happens, in that old texts communicate across centuries and language borders. The conversation makes room for new depths in text and tone. I don’t know how this is possible.” – Ivar Flaten, Dialogue Priest, the Church of Norway
