Sigurder Björnsson

IVC1960SigurderBjornssonVery little is known here of the Icelandic tenor Sigurder Björnsson, other than that he had a long career in his native country. For lack of recordings and further details, al we can currently say about him is that he had a lightweight, high ranging, lyric tenor with a pleasant timbre. According to Utrechtse Courant, both he and Wakefield had remarkable beautiful voices.’ He showed it to best avail during the finals in a song by Schumann, and an aria from Don Giovanni. Johan van Dongen subsequently forgave him for having set an impossible challenge to him by also selecting Bach’s ‘Ich will bei meinem Jesu wachen,’ performed here of course without a chorus.
