(Sister's Slått (Kivlemøyane III)) G. 1111. Written down in 1961 from a NRK recording. Cf. Ø. 488. There are at least 7 Kivlemøy slåtts. See Lindeman N.Fj. No. 213, Halv. 16 and 17. The legend of the Kivlemøys, who were the last heathens in Seljord, Telemark, and who one Sunday, during divine service, played the buck horn and locked the congregation out of the church, and were blasted by the curse of God and the Pope so that they were turned into stone, is found in many variations. See A. Faye, Norske Folkesagn (Kra. 1844), p. 232, R. Berge, Norsk Bondeliv i Segn og Sogu (Kra. 1910) pp. 44-45 and p. 61. I. Aasen, Norske Minnestykker, by J. Lindberg (Kra. 1923), p. 75.
