Gramophone Editor's Choice - January 2009
This double CD comprises Einojuhani Rautavaara's complete music for male choir - one of the most popular genres in the Finnish cult composer's artistic output. The two featured ensembles are YL Male Voice Choir (Helsinki University Choir), one of the world's most prominent male voice choirs and the prominent commissioner and dedicatee of most of Rautavaara's (and also Jean Sibelius's) works for male choir, and the Talla Vocal Ensemble, a smaller group of 10 singers originally founded within the YL Choir.
This comprehensive, magnificently sung collection has the field to itself. (...) The greater textural palette attained through using two differently sized choirs is more akin to early music. Guy Rickards, Gramophone, January 2009, Editor's Choice
