12thdoctorr:

I am in love with “Whiteout”, which plays as Anna sacrifices herself to save Elsa. Those high, haunting notes are not a wind instrument, but singing. In Scandinavia (I’ve been told mainly in Norway and Sweden but I could be wrong, I am from a Norwegian family so I know mostly of only Norwegian tradition) kulning was used to call sheep, cows, and herding women home from the mountains, as a signal for help/distress, or as a signal that the herd was missing. 

I love that they included it, not only because Elsa is in distress, but because she had just come down from the mountains, back to her home.
