Norwegian archival recordings for Easter

Anyone with a liking for historical recordings - audible bumps, scratches and all - may enjoy this offering from the archivists at the Norwegian Institute of Recorded Sound:-
'The Norwegian Institute of Recorded Sound (NIRS) follows up the great feedback we got over the last few years for our musical Advent Calendar with more old, old… old  recordings, for the second edition of our Easter Musical Calendar!

Every day from Palm Sunday until Easter Monday. we will present a vintage recording from 1942 (!), with its original historical noises, where legendary singers and musicians interpret St Matthew’s Passion.

Do you wish to receive a daily reminder with the day’s link(s)? – just answer this email! and/or you can also “like” our Facebook page and thereby get notifications from there.'
