"A fascinating collection of choral works … centering on a Mass setting by Latvian Ugis Praulins … These are works of absolutely luminous beauty."

"Soaring melodies, folklike tunes, drones with religious gravity, and stylized speech are all encompassed by these works, the biggest among them being Ugis Praulins' Missa Rigensis - one of the most original and personal settings of the Mass text imaginable. Best of all, this is a disc to live with: There's much to enjoy on first hearing, but all the pieces have dramatic new revelations on subsequent encounters"
