A pronounced fan of Gudmundsen-Holmgreen’s music, Paul Hillier leads his Ars Nova Copenhagen through this breathtaking choral disc with passion, insight and humour. Hillier has also contributed to the CD booklet with a written essay on his encounter with Pelle’s music.

“The works on this CD constitute a major contribution to the international repertoire of choral music, and any choir or vocal ensemble that has not (yet) engaged with this composer still has something to accomplish!” Paul Hillier on this recording

International Record Review

March 2011

“The performances are absolutely faultless: Gundmundsen-Holmgreen must have been beside himself with pleasure at the result. Paul Hillier and his singers are in complete command of every element: pitch, tempo, structure - from the smallest detail to the vault of the programme as a whole, their technical mastery is astonishing...It left me slack-jawed with admiration.”
