some text about the program:


Appenzell is a small mountain county in the eastern part of the Swiss 
Alps. The mountain ridge of the Alpstein crosses the high plateau of 
Appenzell with the highest mountain called Säntis - the holy mountain, 
2,502.9 meters above sea level.

These field recording sessions took place over a whole year - a complete 
cycle of seasons.

In the springtime the farmers start their processions to the alpine 
grasslands. The ascent to the alpine grasslands is led by the white, 
hornless Appenzeller goats, which are tended by children wearing 
traditional costumes. The goats are followed by the milk cows, heifers 
and calves and the steer. The Appenzeller mountain dog watches from the 
side, and makes sure none of them feel like going astray. The alpine 
herdsmen follow the cows with bells and sing the yodel.

In the middle of the alpine summer it is also common to have music and 
dancing festivities at larger mountain inns. Farmers, locals and 
mountaineers sing and dance together. By the end of summer the alpine 
herdsmen come back with the cows from the upper grasslands. If neither a 
herdsman nor a cow has been injured during summer the herdsmen adorn 
their cows and celebrate the return.

By the early autumn in nearly every village a cattle show takes place. 
The farmers and their families come together at a local pub for the 
assessment and an award ceremony, which is also followed by singing and 

The turn of the year is commemorated twice in Appenzell, once according 
to the Gregorian calendar on 31 December and again according to the 
Julian calendar on 13 January. On these days, groups of men wearing 
bells and chimes run through the small mountain villages, singing and 
chanting an old form of the yodel - the 'Naturjodel'. The faces are 
hidden behind masks and the men are called 'Silvesterchläuse'.

In the early morning they come from remote hamlets, walk from house to 
house to wish the people a happy new year and to exorcize the evil 
spirits from the old year. While some of them look like puppets and 
appear rather delightful, others show up in horrific costumes made of 
materials from animals or the backwoods. For hundreds of years these 
rites have been taking place on that Swiss plateau. Nobody knows exactly 
where the rite comes from.

Towards the end of winter huge fires brighten up the night sky in 
Appenzell to bid farewell to the cold on 'Spark Sunday'. And a new 
season begins.
