Mary's Song: Contemporary Norwegian A Cappella Settings of Marian Texts / Ensemble Ylajali; Pål-Are Bakksjø

Notes & Reviews:

Ensemble Ylajali's new CD Mary's Song presents a selection of contemporary Norwegian a cappella settings of Marian texts. Mary is without a doubt the most influential female figure in sacred music, a fact that inspired the ensemble's decision to make a recording of music devoted to her. Mary has secured the place of women in an otherwise male-dominated part of history; recent research and political currents have revealed further sides of Mary as a historical figure, both in the arts and in academia, making her a fascinating figure for women today.
