Notes & Reviews:

For this CD a program of some of the most popular Danish folk songs is selected, and Michael Bojesen arranged them anew for recorder and choir. Even if you do not know the Danish language you will feel the atmosphere of the Danish homeland. Recorded in DXD sound format.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
The good news is that this is a lovely, lyrical anthology of Danish songs - several of them from the folk idiom - recorded in a warm, clear acoustic by a superb choir that knows and loves what it's doing. Crowning their efforts is the playing of recorder virtuoso Michala Petri, whose obbligatos add a spectrum of buoyant and handsome colors to the singing. My kids grew up listening to a wonderful program of folk songs from around the world with Jean- Pierre Rampal and Maurice Andre playing along. Petri's delightful interpolations took me back to those many hours of happy family singing.
