 A Choral Masterpiece May 18, 2012 By John Wood (Saxtons River, VT) See All My Reviews "Stenhammar's "Sången" is a work I have loved for years but only recently discovered was available on CD. This is a marvelous recording and also includes his "Ithaca," another wonderful choral work. If you like Stenhammar, "Sången" is, in my opinion, his masterwork." Report Abuse
