Svanevit is a folk music quartet with four very
distinguished musicians. Three of the members have claimed the title
"riksspelmän" (official master musicians) and the
fourth is a unique male folk singer, unparallelled in Sweden.
"Rikedom och gåvor" (Wealth and
gifts) forms a new chapter in the tale of the Swedish folk music
group Svanevit, who this time heads south towards the lowlands of
Skåne, the southernmost part of Sweden. This sequel to Svanevit's
critically acclaimed debut album "Gryning" offers beatuiful
songs, ballads, chorales and riveting dance tunes. All the material
comes from the musical collections of the legendary fiddler John
Enninger. This CD marks the 100th anniversary of his death in 1908.
