Notes & Reviews:

"Haflidi Hallgrimmsson, a leading Icelandic composer, has only a few recorded works to his credit: two chamber works and a violin concerto. 'Passia' is his first large work for orchestra and chorus. And a most impressive effort it is. Performances are splended. The 50-voice chior sounds pure and precise, and the small orchestra handles a particularly complex and demanding score with sensitivity and aplomb." - Koob, American Record Guide

BBC Music Magazine
A modern religious masterpiece... Enthusiastically recommended.

Classics Today
Ondine's recording captures the spacious acoustics in vivid, high-impact sound.
