Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Nordic Voices is a six-voice a cappella group blending solo and ensemble qualities: performing with idiomatic style and great rhythmic liveliness, the members employ a playful yet sophisticated approach that highlights their remarkable vocal abilities. They have received glowing commentary on their concert performances, and for their inaugural release on Chandos have put together a unique collection of pieces by sixteenth-century composers associated with the courts of Emperor Charles V, a great musical enthusiast. This superb collection confirms these composers as major figures of their era, and will serve as a perfect introduction to the music of the period.

BBC Music Magazine
Nordic Voices' mixed six-voice configuration (two sopranos, one each of mezzo, tenor, baritone and bass) is beautifully suited to the music in this programme, and their clear, radiant performances, full of character, are vividly captured by the DSD recording on this hybrid disc. The ensemble sound is intimate and close yet individual voices exhibit an airiness and spaciousness.

Washington Post
Intonation? Impeccable. Ensemble? Unfailing precision in phrasing, dynamics, color - everything finely tuned a succession of works ever-changing in style and expressive meaning.
