COMMENTS
A number of slåttar named Systerslått (Sister's Slått), Skjaldmøyslått (Shield Maiden Slått) og Kivlemøyane (The Maidens from Kivle) are all connected with the legend of the two sisters who disturbed the service by blowing their horns and consequently were cursed by the priest and turned into stone; see Vol. I, 90 and 98; Vol II, 13, 42 and 143; Vol. IV, 254; Vol. V, 294 and Vol. VI, 480 and 496.
