Helena Ek says about her concept:

“The quantity of music inspired by the Holy Virgin is immense. As a student at the Academy for Music and Drama in Gothenburg, thanks to my teacher Sven Berger, I became aware of the rich treasure of Marian songs preserved from medieval Europe. Ever since, I have been fascinated by the countless songs of tender adoration for this unique woman. My collaboration with the piper and percussion player Göran Månsson has enriched my repertoire with Nordic folk-music, and the sound of Göran’s provincial folk pipes has also been used to lend colour to the medieval songs.

“For several years I have approached this music in performances of my own, using hurdy-gurdy and medieval fiddle as a complement to my voice. At the recording of this CD, thanks to the participation of fellow musicians, I had the opportunity to accomplish my concept by adding also pipe, percussion, harp and organ.”
