Anita Skorgan - Is It True
Anita Skorgan isn’t a household name in the UK and on the strength of ‘Adventus’ that isn’t likely to be true for much longer.
A superstar in her homeland of Norway, ‘Adventus’ is Anita’s fourteenth album and the first to be made available here in the United Kingdom.
‘Adventus’ is a Christmas project and the seasonal feel is evident from the first track with a mixture of traditional Christmas carols in Norwegian & Latin and original songs written by Anita, all effortlessly handled with Anita’s vocal style. The song selection works well together and the variation in styles and languages blends so well, it is hardly noticeable.
The end result being a relaxed, beautifully crafted album with Anita’s voice taking centre stage to the great production of Jon Willy Rydningen.
