"Prelude" - Choral Works of Grieg, Fauré, Holst, Ola Gjeilo, Sandra Milliken et al. / Oslo Vocalis Womens Choir; Oftung

Conductor Ensemble

Notes & Reviews:

Fresh voices from the North. 'Prelude' is a beautiful release from the Norwegian female choir Oslo Vocalis, presenting a great selection of both well-known repertoire from Holst, Fauré and Grieg and also new classics from composers including Sandra Milliken and Ola Gjeilo. 'Ave Maria' is a lyrical piece by the young Gustav Holst. Graceful is also Fauré's 'Messe basse' (short mass) for female choir and organ. Grieg's 'Ved Rondane' is something of a Norwegian national icon, and Geir Tveitt's 'Velkomne med Æra' is among his best known works. The title track of the album is written by New York based composer Ola Gjeilo. Another Norwegian is Frank Havrøy, whose 'O Magnum Mysterium' will be a welcome discovery for listeners. Australian composer and choral conductor Sandra Milliken's 'Fanfare of Praise' also receives a great performance by Oslo Vocalis on this recording.
