Notes and Editorial Reviews
‘Raunachte’: these are the twelve cold, dark nights which, across Northern Europe, are steeped in myths, legends, and spirituality. In these nights, images of oppressive, bare forests collide with the Christmas message of hope. Time and again, they have inspired composers and poets to works which capture their very unique atmosphere. The LaCappella family consists of a number of ensembles of varying size, who here their attention to compositions and arrangements by Ola Gjeilo and Edward Elgar, by Wilhelm Nagel and John Rutter, bringing these works together on an inspiring album which melds clear, frosty nights with the warmth of candlelight. Raunachte tells stories of stillness, snow, and joyful expectation.
