Notes & Reviews:

This new release features works for children's choir by Rautavaara, performed by the world-renowned Tapiola Choir led by Hyokki. These pieces cover a wide range of topics and moods, extending from humorous nursery rhymes to more serious philosophical issues and religious solemnity.

American Record Guide
This release, besides containing some wonderful music, should serve as a sobering message to local music educators as to what's possible for talented students... I salute everyone involved in this project. Choral music fans should snap this up immediately...

BBC Music Magazine
Best of all [is] Rautavaara's celebration of innocence and experience in his Children's Mass - a mini missa brevis of childlike settingss, interspersed with stern and sombre string-orchestral interludes. All delightfully fresh performances in a satisfying programme.
