The Kivik tomb
MUSICA SVECIAE
LP: MS101 (1984)
CD: MSCD101 (1991)
Sounds from two Danish bronze lurs – including the jingling sounds from the rattles attached to the lurs – together with sounds from the Balkåkra gong here bring to life the Kivik tomb’s depiction of a cult music ensemble. A drum of clay is also heard. The performers walk in procession (from the liner notes of the original booklet).
