Yes, both the melody and voice. Her voice reminds me a little of Nana Mouskouri.
Excellent – thank you for the introduction! :)

Thanks for sharing.
You’re very welcome.
I love Sissel. I have a couple of her albums.
I’d actually not heard of her before happening upon her
singing this song. But I have heard more of her since.
A few days ago I was listening to some Arlo Guthrie and I heard his version of the song. I began listening to other artists singing it as well to see which one I liked the best. It came down to SIssel and Bruce Springsteen. I liked Bruce’s quite a lot but just couldn’t get on board with how he pronounced Shenandoah!
I came cross her singing on an album with Bryn Terfel and was stunned by her voice. Then I had quite a task trying to find an album of hers.
I’ll look for that and also more of Terfel, who I really know just as a name.
I love to sing that song! It is so beautifully written.
Floats through the air like the river itself.
Yes, the song does exactly that. One of my favorite melodies.
