Notes & Reviews:

Formed in 2007, the Kaamos Chamber Choir has performed in numerous concerts and competitions both in Finland and abroad. In 2011 the choir was awarded three gold medals for best choir and the Grand Prix at the Chorus Review of the Tampere Vocal Music Festival. They offer a program that is exciting, inspiring, thought provoking and moving.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
In just half a decade, Dani Juris has brought his Kaamos Chamber Choir up to world-class standards; this, their debut CD, is an auspicious start. They produce an unusually bright and clear sound, with an attractive silky sheen to it: a sound that lends itself well to much of this music's cool Nordic qualities. The women sound almost girlish - charmingly so. The ensemble performs well-nigh flawlessly - with dead-on intonation, beautiful balance, and nicely tailored phrasing. The plumy Super-Audio sound beguiles the ear, and the booklet is nicely done.
