This song takes one to a remote, inhospitable region of the Icelandic Highlands that was believed to be the home of legendary creatures and dangerous outcasts from time immemorial. It was fear of such denizens that impelled one group of travellers to put this trail – the so-called “Sprengisandur” – behind them as rapidly as possible. The steady spurring of the horses is effectively expressed in Michael Aschauer’s rousing arrangement of this “highlight” by Sigvaldi Kaldalóns, especially through the rhythmically accentuated bass part.
This edition includes new English lyrics to this most popular of Icelandic folk songs that skillfully and freely capture the special ambiance.
