Resonus Classics is delighted to present an album featuring a selection of choral music by the celebrated Icelandic composer Hafliði Hallgrímsson.
 
Following the critically acclaimed recording of Hallgrímsson’s carol Joseph and the Angel, which featured on Resonus’s 2012 Christmas release This Christmas Night (RE 0113), this latest album is performed by Schola Cantorum Reykjavík under the direction of their conductor Hörður Áskelsson.
 
Made up entirely of world premiere recordings, this album features most of Hallgrímsson’s smaller-scale choral works including the three-movement work Níunda Stund originally written in 1993 and revised in 2006 together with Rúra, rúra barni (sleep, sleep now darling). This piece is one of the composer’s simplest, but most immediately affecting, pieces, and is an arrangement of a traditional lullaby from the Faroe Islands.

 "...The bright tone of the Schola Cantorum Reykjavík carries a subdued undertow of darker colours, which matches the music’s aesthetic very well."

Fabrice Fitch - Gramophone magazine - April 2013


"...The performances are authoritative, the booklet of notes and texts informative ... and the recording excellent, at least in 24/96 format. Another outstanding download-only release from Resonus."
