It was the only time to date that a predominantly instrumental piece has won the Eurovision Song Contest, although a few Norwegian lyrics.were included to ensure that the entry adhered to the contest’s rules. Norwegian singer Gunnhild Tvinnereim sang the song in the Eurovision Song Contest, with Hans Fredrik Jacobsen on penny whistle and Swedish nyckelharpist Åsa Jinder guesting for  the occasion,  none of them are regular members of the group. Their success at Eurovision spearheaded the success of their first album “Songs from a Secret Garden”.
