Notes & Reviews:

"Estonian composer Veljo Tormis's second ECM disc is a remarkable achievement, a varied selection of choral works from the Sixties to the present day whose very simplicity forces the listener to consider what's going on "behind" the music...The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir gives immaculate, often breathtakingly beautiful performances throughout the disc in a close but resonant acoustic." ***** -BBC Music
