Goose Bumps! Hymn Chanted at German Station Echoes as if throughout a Hall


At Wuppertal station, located west of Germany, a group of men suddenly started chanting a hymn.

Please listen to their grand and spectacular singing voice , which echoes as if throughout a hall.

They sing in harmony as if they sang in a chapel.

You will be surprised by their high level of singing and no wonder. I hear that they are professional musicians who sing Irish traditional music called “Arstidir.”

The hymn they chant is a tune called “Heyr, himna smidur” composed in the 13th century (1208). This is said to be one of the oldest Nordic hymns, which are still chanted.
