12-strong, mixed-voice Canadian a cappella ensemble Musica Intima was inspired to record "into light" after performing at the Pollyfollia festival in France in 2006, where, to their delight, the Canadian choral works they had always performed and commissioned were very well received and admired. The album is a 14 song celebration of original compositions by Canadian composers, some favorites are Imant Raminsh's "Ave Verum Corpus," R. Murray Schafer's 3-part "Three Hymns (from The Fall Into Light)," Rupert Lang's "Agneau de Dieu," Claude Vivier's "Jesus Erbarme Dich," Rupert Lang's "Earth Teach Me," a pair of folk songs by Derek Healey, "Salish Song" and "Inuit Hunting Song;" Bruce Sled's "Ice," Rodney Sharman's "Love" (from "Love, Beauty, Desire") and Lionel Daunais' "Le Pont Mirabeau." "Into light" is a lovely, surprising collection, much of it new to our ears, from a brilliant and talented ensemble, Canada's Musica Intima!
