Icelandic descendants of Vikings singing a hymn in a German train station. They totally need to be on the next Thor soundtrack.
Oh man oh man oh man. 6 guys, and it FILLS THE SPACE. Luck of the architecture - and they know how to pull it off. Nothing is easy making vocal music in a space not built for it. I want to do this kind of thing - randomly perform multipart harmony in public spaces.
And it reminds me of Bjork: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiN_YTyaNtI
My god this is beautiful.
Oh my god, the bass voice is superb.
This makes me feel so many things. Gods, it’s gorgeous and so evocative and wow. I need to find out what hymn this is.
It’s Hear, Heavenly Creator (I don’t know how that’s spelled in Icelandic, and I don’t have the characters on my keyboard for the letters anyway haha).
It’s… old as balls. Like 11th century old.
Why can’t this happen everywhere. Why can’t this be a thing. Why can’t people who are gifted like this just pull this shit off like every day.
Fuck man… in American train stations we just have a bunch of teenagers playing paint buckets like drums.
This is astonishing. I just listened to it with my daughters twice. It made me cry, lulled my 8-year-old to sleep, and my 13-year-old is begging me to figure out a way to get it on to her iPod.
