Cappella Romana Rehearses Arctic Light — Video
Beautiful Finnish choral music of the Orthodox tradition, conducted by Timo Nuoranne from Helsinki, who is making his US debut with Cappella Romana. Cappella Romana will pre-release its 20th recording, also called “Arctic Light,” at these performances.
Listen here to a sample of the music, as performed to sold-out audiences in 2008, a Megalynarion (Ylistysveisu) to the Virgin Mary by Peter Mirolybov (1918–2004) from his “Four Hymns for the Dormition of the Mother of God.”
The works on the program marry a shining Northern clarity of sound with a sonic richness clearly linked to the traditions of Russian choral singing.
