Through Fire And Water

And while on the topic of Eurovision, one of the links along the way to Ms Gall was to this cracking performance by Sarek, taking part in the selection for Sweden's Eurovision 2003 entry. It may not have been picked, but IMO it knocks spots off most years' winners. I mean, how can you resist two miniskirted women (who can sing), and a hurdy-gurdy, and a nyckelharpa? Jings.....

Here's another video you might enjoy. No miniskirts, just a nyckelharpist playing Bach.

Hah! you think that's cool? I just bought a CD of Marco Ambrosini and Didier Francois playing Bartok's 44 Duos for Two Violins, on nyckelharpas of course.

Probably that's about as sad as reading Wikipedia articles on Magnesium Diboride. Time I went to bed. Though I may have another burst of Genom Eld och Vatten before I go....
