    The order of the four parts to this suite are different on the released studio CD of the same title. 1) Songbird Chapel; 2) Persevering with Winter; 3) And the Darkness Has Not Overcome; 4) Ante Lucem. I’ve read that parts of the CD were taken from this recording, which is so amazing.

    A unique performance never repeated afterwards. One of the most elegant piano and harp players around. With Scandinavian touch, of course.
