Marta Sebestyen is still best known for En Csak Azt Csodalom, the haunting lullaby with an edgy choral backing that was featured in the opening scene of The English Patient, but she has also worked with the Muzsikas band, Peter Gabriel and Deep Forest, with whom she won a Grammy. This new set, the first album she has recorded for her own label in Hungary, is a far more personal affair. The songs are taken from the Hungarian religious and folk traditions, but mixed together so that each track is a medley of sections from different songs. Márta Sebestyén is best known for her work with Muzsikás as well as for her contribution to the soundtrack of The English Patient, but the Hungarian singer has released a number of solo discs. This is a very worthy addition to her canon. With Sebestyén accompanied by two multi-instrumentalists on a range of instruments eight of them as well as her own whistle and drum playing, this is far less stripped-down than it might seem.

Almost a decade and a half after winning an Oscar and a Grammy Award in the same year, Márta Sebestyén makes another bid for international attention with material sourced from considerably closer to home. I Can See the Gates of Heaven first appeared on her own newly-founded Viva La Musica label in her native Hungary last year, and collects together songs and hymns from the folk and religious traditions of the Carpathian Basin. On this lovely, seasonal album, the voice behind The English Patient gives us a rare piece of musical archaeology. Accompanied by two outstanding musicians on wind and strings, she sings a series of songs, laments and hymns that can still be heard in remote parts of the Carpathian mountains. The often flattened intervals take us right out of our Western European aural comfort zone her timbre has a timeless quality, sometimes skittish, sometimes grave, but always seeming to come straight out of the earth.
