Recorded August 2008. Released February 2010.
“…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.” – The Philadelphia Enquirer
Stephen Layton’s longstanding dedication to the choral music and composers of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania bears fruit in this beautiful album of works by four leading composers. The deep-rooted singing traditions of the Baltic nations, intimately intertwined with the story of their modern independence, manifest themselves in music of invariable profundity.
