Notes & Reviews:

Hymn to the Sun is the debut CD of the Danish National Vocal Ensemble, based in the new Concert Hall of the Danish Broadcasting Corporation. Hymn to the Sun presents some of the most prominent Danish 20th- and 21st-century composers of choral music in works using a modern, variegated musical language that draws inspiration from many different genres and styles. More than anything else, this is music inspired by highly evocative texts: Poems by Hans Christian Andersen; the Psalms of the Bible, and ancient poetry worshipping the Sun.
