3.0 out of 5 stars NOT the Prog Rock Bo Hansson 15 Mar 2012
By Hectare
Format:Audio CD
Anyone thinking they have uncovered a lost classical gem by the superb 1970's prog/rock artist responsible for 'Lord of the Rings', 'Magician's Hat', 'Attic Thoughts' 'Watership Down' is in for a let-down.
This Hansson is a contemporary classical guitarist and composer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Subdued Beauty 10 Oct 2012
By Michael Roof - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I enjoy this CD quite a bit, though I must admit that my pleasure level seems to vary somewhat with my mood. I love all of the modern Baltic choral music that has come our way during the past 20 years, especially the works since around 1995 or so. I purchased this CD after reading a review in The American Record Guide, a publication I highly recommend to those few of us left who still love a broad swath of classical music. No other review publication even comes close. Anyway, Hansson's "northern style" choral music, while probably a bit subdued for some, is both expressive and beautiful. There is some dissonance, not a lot, but that present seems deliberate and not necessarily artistic, almost as though the composer can't get the bitter sound of 20th century music out of his mind. That said, I really like most of this music; furthermore, the performances and sound quality are excellent. I give it four stars because it lacks the intense beauty of other Baltic choral music, or the competing music of Whitacre, Gjielo, Lauridsen, Vasks, Miskinis, and others. Still, this is a very pleasant listen if you like modern, and I mean modern (not 20th century) "northern choral music". I will listen to it often.
