Notes & Reviews:

The Graduale Nobili choir, founded in Autumn 2000, is comprised of 24 girls handpicked from those who have sung with the Lagholtskirkja Graduale Choir. Graduale Nobili has participated in many choir competitions, mainly in the UK and Scandinavia, with award-winning results in the categories of Female Choir and Chamber Choir. The choir worked on Bjork's last album, Biophilia, and has been part of her performance group, participating in six Biophilia performances in New York last spring.

Graduale Nobili perform Britten and Rutter with the sort of mature sound that's refreshing to hear in a choir of such young women.
