Det var en lise for sjelen å atter høre Asbjørnsens finslepne stemme fremme både trøstesanger og kraftsanger fra den rikholdige tonearven… Asbjørnsen og hennes ensemble har satt er solid avtrykk med denne konserten. Dette magiske møtet har befestet vår oppfatning av Kristin Asbjørnsen som en stor kunstner.
