Notes and Editorial Reviews

"A lovely debut album by Benjamin Isachsen. We are offered a brilliantly clear boy soprano voice to guide us through a broad spectrum of music. The voice has many dimensions, and there is a vulnerability in it, as though Isachsen and all around him are aware of its impermanence."

-- Erik Steinskog, Bergens Tidende

"Something as rare as a Norwegian boy soprano, a piercingly pure boy soprano. The recording reveals above all just how vulnerable the vibratoless voice of a child is. In this sense it also is a manifestation of the CD's existential title, which expresses so well what the recording is all about. One would be hard pressed to find purer intonation."
