The recent wave of Baltic choral music has been a very welcome addition to the recorded repetoire. I recently became familiar with the lovely, affecting music of Miskinis (Lithuanian) and the strikingly beautiful, and occasionally ecstatically moving compositions of Latvian composer, Eriks Esenvalds. I have been a lover of Bach, Mozart, Haydn, Poulenc, and Vaughn-Williams sacred choral music for decades, and this material belongs on the same shelf. Make no mistake, I am not a fan or follower or "contemporary classical music", but these works fall in a category with the 1976, 3rd Symphony of Gorecki - great in any era. I can't get enough of this stuff, and this CD has been a welcome addition to the genre. It is clear that these Baltics are faithfully religious, something which I am not, but their apparent fervor shows through and this music is always interesting, at times gorgeous, and almost always affecting. There's no room here for dried-out academic theorists, or the predictable, repetitive, cloying, and "off-noted" drone of British choral music. This material is fresh and original - like nothing I've ever listened to. I also highly recommend the CD "Passion and Resurrection" by Eriks Esenvalds, also available on Amazon. If you love choral music of any era, give this CD and the Esenvalds a try. You'll be glad you did.
