About

'Nordan transforms nearly forgotten medieval balladry into glorious living tradition. It chills like the northern winds after which it was named, while whispering a thousand mysteries. Nordan itself is all over some parchement chart that Vikings might once have employed. Möller's arrangements transform tunes originally played by fishermen, shepherds, and country fiddlers into mini-suites that maintain the songs' natural spirit with droning fiddles and bagpipes, while pushing them into jazzier territory.' - SPIN Magazine
