Notes & Reviews:

The Danish composer Peter Heise (1830-79) was a master of writing for voice. In his quartets and choral songs for male voices we meet Romanticism in its clearest form with songs about women, art, nature and his native country. The gentle, pure tone of the music is excellently handled by the male voices of the Danish National Vocal Ensemble and Choir and not least by the conductor Michael Schonwandt, who has a lifelong love of Danish Golden Age music.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
Blissful love, dying winters, sweet springs and summers, Scandinavia's natural beauty, the allure of the forest, the sadness of death, and a love of country are the pervading themes of the songs, which are sung amiably and mellifluously. Handsome SACD sound; texts and translations. It's an enjoyable one.
