Heinavanker (the Haywain) is a vocal ensemble the activity of which is inspired by older sacred music. The ensemble has got its name after the famous altarpiece of Hieronymos Bosch (1453-1516). This rare piece of art represents a huge waggonload of hay rolling through the world vexed by agony and greed towards destruction. However, atop the hayload there sounds beautiful music.
