Notes & Reviews:

The Copenhagen Girls' Choir rates among the best of its kind in Denmark. The Choir was founded in 1973, and it has a broad repertoire with special focus on new music and popular music. Many composers of stature have felt persuaded to write for the choir, among them Knut Nystedt, Ib Nørholm, Leif Kayser, Maj-Britt Kramer, Bo Holten and Michael Bojesen. The choir also performs music by classic composers such as Fauré, Poulenc, Brahms, Schubert and Rheinberger. The Copenhagen Girls' Choir is characterized by its homogenous sound, partly resulting from the fact that the girls are of the same age (grade 6-9), partly a result of the careful voice-training that all the pupils of the Sankt Annæ Gymnasium go through. The Copenhagen Girls' Choir has recorded several CDs throughout the years and has toured all over the World, always aiming to spread out the knowledge of Danish and Scandinavian music and timbre.
