The Sheep Cello Project

The Sheep Cello Project is one of the initiatives of the Askja cello ensemble, a group of cellists from the orchestra Sinfóníuhljómsveit áhugamanna. This time, the group was formed by Páll Einarson, Guðrún Svana Hilmarsdóttir, Bianca Tighe, Anna Jórunn Stefándsóttir, Isabel C Barrio and Matylda Hermanská. All the recordings took place in the chapel of the University of Iceland in a cold Reykjavík winter morning. We are very grateful to Nanna Gréttirsdóttir for recording!

The song you hear throughout the course is Sveitin mín, arranged for cello ensemble by Páll Einarson.
