Notes & Reviews:

The bulk of the material on this, the third Voces Nordicae CD, is choral music specifically dedicated to the ensemble. Open minded towards new timbres, Voces Nordicae combines a pleasant light blend with surprising and ventured sounds. The choir was invited to sing at the World Symposium of Choral Music in Puerto Madryn, Argentina, in August 2011.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
English translations of the texts are included, along with so-so notes that are intermittently helpful. An interesting program, most capably done and anchored by nine elegant and eloquent minutes of Rautavaara.
