The album features revelatory performances of the choral music of Estonian composer Cyrillus Kreek (1889-1962). Kreek's pieces, incorporating graceful settings of psalms & folk hymns, are juxtaposed here with instrumental fantasias & interludes created for this recording by Marco Ambrosini. In previous ECM recordings, the choir have addressed works of Arvo Prt, Erkki-Sven Tr & Helena Tulve, as well as Gregorian chant- thus proving to be ideal interpreters of a music poised between old & new.
