A medieval voice

The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire is launching the project Augmented Vocality. In collaboration with literature and language experts (from Cambridge University) and music technicians and ensembles, they are going to bring the sound of the Old Norse language back to life. Just reading this vague description gets me on the edge of my seat. The recent Middle Dutch rendition had me wishing every single piece of Middle Dutch literature would have its own audiobook this way. So, bring on the sound of Old Norse skaldic poetry!
