Digital Booklet

"... meticulously researched ... imagines the instruments Vikings played and the voices they sang with ... the instrumentals are pretty dry, but the singing of Ute Goedecke and Aino Lund Lavoipierre is gorgeous: two pure and fulsome voices, beautifully matched."
- The Guardian

This is the second volume in Delphian Records’ monumental collaboration with the European Music Archaeology Project exploring the earliest known music from Scandanavia. Together with partners from 10 European countries, the project has researched and brought to life ancient music from 40,000 BC to present day. A series of international exhibitions held in conjunction with the release of these albums will allow the public to more fully understand the crucial role that music played in ancient societies. Ice & Longboats includes songs improvised on Viking instruments, as well as notated songs from the earliest centuries of Christianity in Scandinavia.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
