The recording is deeply personal; made up of Helseth’s favourite pieces which explore the full sound, range, and moods of the instrument. It includes music she remembers hearing during her childhood such as Lindberg’sGammal Fäbodpsalm från Dalarna and Purcell’s Trumpet Tune in C major as well as modern songs for special occasions such as Sjöberg’s Den första gång jag såg dig - a Swedish love song translated as The First Time I Saw You. Other composers include JS Bach, Telemann, Grieg, Per-Erik Moraeus, Lindberg, Henning Sommerro and many more.
In the lead up to the release, there will be three digital singles. Charpentier's "Prelude from Te Deum" (26 Feb), then Sofðu unga ástin mín, arranged by Jarle Storløkken (26 March), and Purcell’s Trumpet Tune (23 April).
