about

My own unique arrangement of a Norwegian Medieval Ballad

lyrics

This is an instrumental version, but the story told in the song is of Ingelin and Lovmann. Lovmann has to travel to sea to make money before he can marry her, promising to come back at a certain time for the wedding. Ingelin's brothers, however, grow impatient, wanting to marry her off as soon as possible, and so arranges for her to be married to the wealthy Tor.

Ingelin manages to procrastinate the wedding as much as she can, and Lovmann hurries and makes it back just in time to marry her. Tor, being quite the gentleman about the whole thing, saying it's alright as long as he gets to marry Lovmann's sister instead.

about

Hakon Inverness, UK

From Norway, but living in Scotland, I am a poet, artist, designer, photographer, and long-time dabbler in music.

I play recorders, Native American flutes, and a few notes on the piano, as well as enjoying exploring the timbral possibilities of purely electronic music.

I love playing traditional music from Brittany, Norway and Ireland, as well as my own compositions.
