Drawing on the romantic spirit in music, Schubert’s moving setting is of a poem by Goethe which compares a rushing waterfall to the soul of man, while Strauss’s gorgeous Mittagsruhe depicts the peace of a summer noontide. Narrative vocal traditions are heard in Sibelius’s nationalist Vapautettu kuningatar, Bruckner’s heroic Helgoland, and Grieg’s Landkjenning, which tells of the 10th century Norwegian king Oleg Tryggvason. Das Liebesmahl der Apostel anticipates the religious ecstasies of Wagner’s Parsifal, while Debussy’s early cantata Invocation resonates with Gallic sparkle.

***

“Seven resonant Romantic rarities...enthusiastically performed by a Swedish student choir.”

International Record Review

February 2013

“This ensemble has a history that dates back to 1831...its joy in singing is one of the main reasons this disc is such a success. The other is its one-of-a-kind programme, which contains several unfamiliar or even obscure works, which nevertheless are of very high quality...This is a likeable release, and it would take an entire rugby team to pry it from my hands!”
