Notes & Reviews:

Finnish composer Jaakko Mantyjarvi (b. 1963) has written some of the finest choral music of the past 50 years. To date, this semi-professional musician, whose output consists mostly of choral works, has had over one hundred of them published. Founded in 2009, the chamber choir Cor Cantiamo's mission objective is to perform and promote contemporary choral music and foster new composers for the art form. Eric A. Johnson D.M.A. is Cor Cantiamo's Founding Artistic Director.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
The performances have real personality too, as the singers embrace the composer's varied styles and moods with commendable spirit and skill. The notes tell us that this choir of 26 is "in residence" at Northern Illinois University, which could mean that it is a student group (or not). Whichever is the case, they're very good. Whatever America has become these days, we are still a nation that sings, and God bless us for that. Notes, texts, and translations.
