Notes & Reviews:

The tall, vocally hardy baritone Morten Frank Larsen, in his Met debut, was wonderful. The New York Times - March 2011 Erotic Hymns (1998) is a sacred song cycle in which composer Bent Lorentzen (b. 1935) combines Baroque and contemporary Danish poetry in a fascinating exploration of the relationship between erotic and religious experience. This world premiere recording by baritone Morten Frank Larsen and organist Jens E. Christensen also features three of Lorentzen's major organ works and concludes with a chorale motet cycle, balancing the CD in beautiful symmetry.

Notes & Reviews:
