Blot en ild (Merely a Fire)
The impetus to arrange a bouquet of new melodies, lyrics and musical pieces was at the heart of the vision to celebrate the trios ten-year anniversary of playing together in 2017. The music is all written exclusively by the ladies of Zenobia. The lyrics in Blot en Ild are parts of classic texts that have been combined with new melodies. In Kai Hoffmans 'Den danske sang er en ung blond pige'; and H.C. Andersen's 'I Danmark er jeg født' one will find a new approach that has the intent to invite listeners to contemplate the meaning behind the lyrics once again. There are also newly written verses by Benny Holst, and by Zenobia's author on previous productions, Martin Rauff-Nielsen, to be found on the record.
Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
