Choral music from Finland, Sweden and the Baltic countries has been especially popular with us ever since the film "As it is in Heaven". For decades composers like Mikalojus Ciurlionis and Veljo Tormis have had their permanent place in the concert programmes, arrangers contribute outstanding movements and Swedish pop groups keep us happy. Many folkloristic melodies of the countries mentioned fascinate singers and listeners alike.
In each of the pieces there is something special to discover: You can feel a certain lightness throughout, combined with a touch of melancholy, but above all the joy of multi-layered harmony with a predominantly cheerful note.
