Niels la Cour (b.1944): Works for Choir and Organ / Bine Bryndorf, organ; Trinitatis Kantori

Notes & Reviews:

The Danish composer Niels la Cour (b. 1944) has the whole sacred music tradition as a natural starting point in his striving for beauty, timelessness and a suprapersonal sublimity. The expressive balance, internal consistency and calm, organically breathing melodic basis of the music make it perfect for the church interior, as clearly shown by this recording from the Trinitatis Church in Copenhagen with the organ soloist Bine Bryndorf and the chamber choir Trinitatis Kantori.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
More than 50 of these 73 minutes are assigned to the organist, and I know as much about playing the organ as I do about ice fishing. That said, I can tell you that Denmark's Niels La Cour (b 1944) is a composer whose sacred choral works seek out the gentler elements of faith, and that his penchant for creating a sense of spiritual calm extends to his writing for the King of Instruments. It's quite satisfying in its own quiet, emotionally balanced way.
