Critical response to the debut disc of this ambitious 17-voice Danish choir should be a reality check. Young virtuosa Louise Boll impresses, performing fine organ works by Peteris Vasks and Jan Janca but, from the choir’s opening brisk stab at Górecki’s Totus tuus, it is downhill most of the way. Several works by Arvo Pärt confound them with an exacting minimalism beyond their current technical abilities. There’s hope in the choir’s sensitive dynamic range and discipline, but dodgy intonation and blend cannot be hidden in a group so small. Self-knowledge is recommended – hearing themselves objectively may help.
