White Willow - Sacrament (2000)

The third album from this Norwegian band.

The band was a sextet on this album with a lineup of glockenspiel, drums, percussion, bass, guitars, keyboards, melodica, flute, recorder and vocals.

Two guest musicians contributed with voices and oboe.

White Willow is back again with their take on Scandinavian symphonic prog.

It is not particular conventional symphonic prog they are bringing to the market on this album.

Take some folk rock, add some electronica and some symphonic prog. Add some mysterious sounding female vocals too from Sylvia Erichsen and you got this album.

The music is pastoral and understated. Less is more is the main theme here. The sound is by no means over crowded. It is not even particular crowded either. One to three instruments at one time.

There are some good guitars and flutes here. The vocals is very good and the sound too is very good.

An outstanding track or even a great track is what this album is missing. But this album is really good and well worth checking out.
