A Useful Discovery

This weekend, I found what I am nearly certain will be a very helpful resource in my attic while searching for Halloween decorations. What I found was, located on a bookshelf, a three-hundred and fifty-four page biography on Norwegian musician Ole Bull, entitled, Ole Bull: Norway’s Romantic Musician and Cosmopolitan Patriot. Ole Bull was, according to the Store Norske Leksikon (Grand Norwegian Encyclopedia), one of the most important contributors to the Norwegian Romantic Nationalist movement, and he was responsible for writing down most of what we know as Norwegian folk music today. I am excited to start reading this biography and writing about it in future posts.
