Twenty-eight of Christian Sinding’s fine songs – late-Romantic with an occasional folksong flavour – are offered here, including settings in German as well as his native Norwegian. The pure-toned soprano Bodil Arnesen is affecting, sometimes radiant. The recording makes Erling Ragnar Eriksen’s accompaniments seem rather harsh. Keith Potter
