Notes and Editorial Reviews

...Erik Esenvalds's rich arrangement for soloists and eight part choir works as a curtain-raiser to his hypnotic A Drop in the Ocean and other strongly crafted pieces by living Latvian composers. Peteris Vasks is responsible for the album's finest music, technically demanding and strikingly original in sound. His The Message of the Titmouse and substantial Plainscapes receive idiomatic performances, unflagging in intensity and conviction, from prize winning youth choir Kamer.
