Notes and Editorial Reviews

Music from two lands of winter. Acclaimed Danish conductor/composer Bo Holten and Edmonton composer Malcolm Forsyth are featured in a magical portrayal of landscapes and textures. Holten has many highly-regarded recordings to his credit. Pro Coro's excellent reputation was instrumental in obtaining his participation in this project. 'Holten's remarkable settings of Alberta poet (and native Icelander) Stephan Stephansson are... powerfully evocative, and Forsyth's love of language and word-play, built so integrally into his music, are unmistakable.' - Edmonton Journal. '(Pro Coro) has become a first-class ensemble...The singers attack their parts fearlessly, even enthusiastically. You take the accuracy for granted. That's the mark of a very Read more good choir indeed.' - Steve Schwartz, www.classical.net Read less
