Notes & Reviews:

Graduale Nobili was founded in Fall 2000, and the choir was immediately well received. Most recently, the choir has been working with pop sensation Björk on her album Biophilia. Ten Years contains a wide variety of works released to celebrate the choir's 10th anniversary. The repertoire represents contemporary Icelandic choir music, including a performance of "Suite" de Lorca with words by Frederico Garcia Lorca and music by Einojuhani Rautavaara.
