Voces Nordicae

Voces Nordicae

.

The vocal ensemble Voces Nordicae comes from the scenery of Swedish choral tradition. In 1999 the ensemble was founded by the Danish conductor Lone Larsen and it consists of 16 professional singers. The repertoire of Voces Nordicae is varied, including works from essentially all periods of music history, with special attention to Nordic, contemporary and improvisatory music.

Open minded towards new timbres, Voces Nordicae combines a pleasant light blend with surprising and ventured sounds. Repertoire and programs are selected with great care, and encompass a wide span of musical and human expression. This interesting variation together with the desire to transmit the music through a scenic presence brings attention and curiosity to the audience.

In 2008 Voces Nordicae was selected Choir of the Year in Sweden by Concerts Sweden.

Voces Nordicae : Nordic Voices

Review: Lone Larsen founded the choir Voces Nordicae during her diploma studies at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, supervised by professor Anders Eby. Her Danish heritage is reflected on the album NORDIC VOICES; here you will find music by three of the most brilliant Danish composers: Vagn Holmboe, Jorgen Jersild and Per Norgard. This CD also contains two arrangements by one of Scandinavia's most apprechiated arrangers of choral music, Gunnar Eriksson. The two songs are Kristallen den fina (a quadlibet of three folk songs) and To the mothers in Brazil, the latter being one of the most popular songs by the Swedish jazz composer and pianist Lars Jansson. The Finnish composer Jaakko Mantyjarvi is represented with his magnificent piece Five Shakespeare Songs. Two composers; the Basque composer Javier Busto, with his folkloristic piece Sagastipean and the Estonian composer Urmas Sisask, with his expressive piece Benedictio, represent Europe outside the Nordic countries.

Songlist: Fjaugen , Kaerlighedsrosen, Min Yndlingsdal , Sagastipean, I Denna Ljuva Sommartid, Liber Canticorum, Kristallen Den Fina , Flos Ut Rosa Floruit , To The Mothers In Brazil/Salve Regina, Benedicto, Four Shakespeare Songs

Voces Nordicae : Time Is Now : 00  1 CD : Lone Larsen :  : 036

Voces Nordicae : Time Is Now

Review: Time is Now, the successor of their first album Nordic Voices, contains a broad spectrum of favorites from the choir's repertoire. The time span is huge, covering music from the Renaissance to the present day, with compositions by Francisco Guerrero, Josef Rheinberger, James Taylor, Olle Lindberg, Susanne Rosenberg, among others. The conductor and artistic leader, Lone Larsen, has contributed with the title track Time is Now and also with some of the arrangements. The variety in the repertoire is a clear signum of Voces Nordicae. Voces Nordicae has gained an international reputation as one of the most prominent choirs in Sweden. Part of this reputation is due to their successful appearances at special performances abroad and a number of awards at international choir festivals. As one of the foremost representatives of Swedish choral singing, Nordic Voices was invited to the ACDA's (American Choral Directors Association) national meeting in Miami, in Mars 2007. This is an honor that previously has been given to only three Swedish choirs, among these the Swedish Radio Choir and The Real Group.

Songlist: Ave MAria, Pater Noster, Hymn To The Creator Of Light , Time is Now, Danse, Ikke Grate Na , Pust, Be Of Love, That Lonesome Road, Sun On The Moon , Det Er Den Storste Darlightet, Sonnet No. 76, Kyrie, Gloria , Kyrie
