Swedish 3-woman, 1-man folk quartet The Lingonberries bring us their second sweet, melodic CD, "Swedish Christmas Songs." Twelve songs, (which has always seemed to us the best number for a Christmas CD) all sung in Swedish. But listening to "Jul, Jul" we realized that the language difference means very little here. There are a couple of carols we know, "Det Ar En Ros Utsprungen" (the traditional German carol "Lo How a Rose E'er Blooming") and "Stilla Natt/Silent Night." Listening to "Nar Det Lider Mot Jul," "Hosianna," ""Goder Afton," "Lusse Lella," "Nu Tandas Tusen Juleljus" or "Bereden Vag For Herran"--for the first time out of context, we would still know from the phrasing, and the feeling that comes through the singers that they are Christmas songs. Invite The Lingonberries and add an international flavor to your Christmas celebration!
