It is that beckoning that starts Wizard Women of the North, a collection of leading Nordic women. Sylvan spirits and fjord-filling fog populate this ancient land in the mind. The distinctively talented and exotically styled female vocalists and instrumentalists on this album make that magical realm a reality. As for instruments, many of these musicians choose the violin, as do Hege Rimestad, Annbjorg Lien, Mari Eggen and Helene Hoye, and Susanne Lundeng. Their attraction to the bottom strings and droning double-stops is an exquisite contrast to the siren cries and cheerful, folk chorales that.

It is that beckoning that starts Wizard Women of the North, a collection of leading Nordic women. This potpourri is also an introduction to the rich and varied universe of Scandinavian recordings. Each track comes off another album, and the notes provide source information. The notes also include the fairy tale of the Wizard Woman of the North and the despair induced by long, hard winters. This goes a long way to putting into context a vibrant and varied assembly of folk music that so often veers to the sad and melancholy.

Most of this anthology authentically recreates ancient traditions, from a cappella herding calls and lullabies to ballads and instrumental duos. All of the performances are excellent and many are vividly evocative.

Cry from the Earth: Music of the North American Indians. The various tribes from across North America suffered devastating losses as the United States, Mexico and Canada were conquered by the Europeans Ardith Tofteland.

The Good Witch of the North, sometimes named Locasta or Tattypoo, is a fictional character in the Land of Oz, created by American author L. Frank Baum. She is the elderly and mild-mannered Ruler of the Gillikin Country. Her only significant appearance in Baum's work is in Chapter 2 of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900), in which she introduces Dorothy to Oz and sends her to meet the Wizard, after placing a protective kiss on her forehead.
