Notes & Reviews:

The Danish Golden Age in the first half of the 19th century is known as a period with an abundance of artistic expression, famous talents H. C. Andersen, Kierkegaard, Weyse and Gade. But according to Paul Hillier, we can speak of a continued 'Golden Age' for Danish choral music today - which is why this collection of Hillier's Danish Golden Age jewels with Ars Nova Copenhagen includes Classical and Romantic works as well as music from subsequent generations and right up until our own time.
