Notes & Reviews:

Swedish choral conductor Eric Ericson was one of the true legends in his field, considered the master at his craft by many professional choir conductors and singers. When he died in 2013 at the age of 94, he had spent decades working to place his two Stockholm choirs - the Stockholm Chamber Choir, later renamed the Eric Ericson Chamber choir in his honor, and the Swedish Radio Choir - among the international musical elite. His recordings from the 1970's include unique interpretations of works ranging from Gesualdo and Dowland in the Renaissance to Penderecki and Ligeti in the 20th century and much more, all released here for the first time in a single box. The six discs split programmatically into two sets of three discs each; the first three under the rubric "Five Centuries of European Choral Music, and the last three under the designation "Virtuoso Choral Music".
