Some tunes from Norway:

  • Napoleons telbakemarsj (Napoleon’s Retreat March), old langeleik tune from Valdres, Norway. The age of the title can at least be guessed due to the person named in it. About 1815, then?
  • Gammel reinlender frå Vingelen, Østerdalen: Old reinlender from Vingelen in Østerdalen in Norway, originally a willow pipe tune which Tone Hulbækmo transferred to the Norwegian folk harp, and played at the NHM 2008 in Lund. It is in Lydian mode, which sounds a little bit odd to modern ears, therefore Tone calls it “På snei”.
