Founded in 2002 with 24 voices, this exciting Norwegian choir presents balanced and sensitive performances of a wide range of Nordic music, from the highly atmospheric vocal explorations by choir member Marianne Reidarsdatter Erikson to folksong arrangements by Nielsen and others. Bo Holten’s Vokalise is a rich Delius-like texture, balanced by his extended There is a time, which involves an impressively dissonant climax before melting into a diatonic chorale. Harald Gullichsen’s Psalm 27 is in English, and Jaakko Mäntyjärvi provides an outstanding setting of Ave Maria d’Aosta.
