Performed by Helge Slaatto, violin; Klaus-Peter Werani, viola; Erik Borgir, violoncello; Frank Reinecke, double bass. Various moods are encountered here, each strophe of a demonstrably vocal part reaching ever upwards into the jubilant light and descending into the shadows. Helge Slaatto (violin) takes over the line from Klaus- Peter Werani (viola), passes the word back to him and indulges in a little duet with Frank Reinecke (double bass). And then again, right up to the close, the song is sung on its own, by Erik Borgir (violoncello) and finally by the bassist. In a series of short but personal booklet texts, the four interpreters tell us how they feel about the music they play: as a fanfare, as a heady current, as an ocean voyage, into unknown vistas. As an encounter with never-ending pain. And as a glimpse of hope of something that lies beyond, a life after death.
