Notes & Reviews:

Compositions featuring the human voice and bassoon are rare. There is no clear reason for the relative dearth of bassoon/vocal works, but it certainly cannot be for a lack of beauty, to which this recording attests.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
The high points of the program are the pieces that use full chorus and bassoon; without doubt, Egil Hovland's mass for bassoon and mixed chorus, Agnus Dei, is my favorite. Having performed this piece a few times with big cathedral choirs, I understand the approach Hovland and others have taken in scoring the bassoon in this setting. The instrument serves beautifully as quasi-lyrical embellishment to the chorus.
