I've had the opportunity to hear some of these works performed by the Phoenix Chorale in person. They are breath-taking. This collection of Gjeilo's work performed by a body of musicians who know him and what he's attempting to express so intimately is not to be missed.
Simply One of the Greatest
I, myself have performed three of these songs in choir. One of which is Northern Lights and i was in the Group that first officially performed it and i met and became friends with Ola. He is one of the best composers of this generation. All of he's works go beyond beautiful. they each are Pure Magic! If u love classical music, it would be a sin, not to listen to this album!
I laughed, I cried...it was better than Cats! A vocal tour de force! Seriously,beautiful.
