Design: The design incorporates elements seen on the Gospel Herald label, and are combined well with the standard Odeon format.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Kjell Thorsen of Norway, who notes: "Hjemmets Herold was a label of the Swedish Pingströrelsens and Filadelfias record company, which released religious music. The recordings were pressed by Odeon. This recording is by the Swedish-American baritone singer Einar Ekberg (1905-1961). Where the recording took place is unknown, but it was released on this Norwegian label. In his time Ekberg was very popular and put out a large number of records, mainly of a religious nature. He also had records released on the Odeon label. There is a demand nowadays for his recordings and some have been re-issued on CD."
