I’m a dedicated consumer of goodies from Scandiwegia: from ikea to the TV dramas Borgen and The Bridge and the current flow of fabulous early and contemporary music, I’m a fan. Being disposed in advance to think well of new products from those parts, The Divine Mystery was a disappointment. It’s simply too derivative on too many levels: the four female voices of Schola Gothia from Sweden sing a smorgasbord of medieval chant and polyphony quite pleasantly, with nice saxophone improvisations from Hanna Wiskari Griffiths. How do you say ‘jumping on the bandwagon’ in Swedish?
