Long ago in Norway, children sometimes fell victim to the Toothache Troll. Such happened to Margot, who spent dark winter days listening to her grandmother's stories, but not to her admonitions about tooth care. In this enchanting CD, tales of deception and danger, of trolls and "hulders," and of the "Nøkk" that lures children to his lake-bottom den are cleverly interwoven with vocal and instrumental music. Narrator Judith Simundson provides a rich texture of spoken word, songs, and sounds, as well as performances on the Norwegian folk harp and medieval lyre, and a synthesizer. Loretta Kelley adds frequent threads of Hardanger fiddle music to complete a truly inspired production of the folklore of long ago Norway. J.J.F.
