Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This is a church opera in three acts by Finnish composer Jyrki Linjama, who was born in 1962.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
The performance is quite good, and I enjoyed hearing the nice lyric soprano of Langmayr as Mary and the warm contralto of Paavola's Elizabeth. Chorell's Gabriel is secure up into the countertenor range, and Ruutunen is a stalwart, sympathetic Zachary (the mostinteresting character here). The musicians are expert, and the sound is excellent. German texts are supplied, with English and Finnish translations.
