 Sweetness From Finland May 3, 2017 By bess holloway (Boulder, CO) See All My Reviews "This delightful CD was recorded in 1997 at the Roihuvuori Church in Helsinki. If you love the sound of children singing this set of songs by various Finnish composers, sung by the Tapiola Choir, will lift your spirits. Notes and song titles are in English, but songs are printed only in Finnish. Organ or kantele, a Finnish folk instrument, accompany many of the songs." Report Abuse
