Wolftooth
______________________________________________

For Voice & Viols

From Wolftooth's first performance, with founder-members Anna Tullberg (mezzo-soprano) and Anna-Stina Tressol (bass viol)

______________________________________________

Wolftooth is based in Lund, in southern Sweden. The music it performs dates from a time when this Swedish province, Skåne, was part of the Danish kingdom of Christian IV. Christian was a patron of science and music, and an employer, from nearby Elsinor, of the astronomer Tycho Brahe and the lutenist, songwriter and composer John Dowland*. "Wolftooth" is an anglicisation of "Ulfstand", the name of an important family of the province at that time. The Danish nobleman Hack Holgersen Ulfstand was responsible for the construction of the beautiful and contemporary church of Genarp, completed in 1593. Here Wolftooth presented its second programme.
