Notes & Reviews:

Originally founded in 1968, Aurea is currently a choir of 35-45 singers aged 11-17 from the special music classes of the City of Jyaskyla, Finland. The group is well-known throughout the world and has won prizes in various national and international competitions. Despite the youth of its members, this choir excels in varied and demanding repertoire. Here, their current conductor Sanna Salminen leads lovely performances of Christmas music both traditional and modern.
