Performance:   Sonics:    
With this recording of exceptional beauty, we are literally transported to the heart of a choral universe of the highest quality in which the works of composers both known and little-known have been convoqued. The program revolves around the iconic figure of the Virgin Mary, with notably “Hymn to the Virgin” by Benjamin Britten, followed by “Salve Regina” by Francis Poulenc, “Ubi Caritas” by Maurice Duruflé, “Ave Maria” by Anton Bruckner, “Bogoroditse Devo” by Sergeï Rachmaninov and Arvo Part, “Lux Aurumque” by Eric Whitacre, “Stabat Mater” by Andrew Smith, and “O Nata Lux” by Morten Lauridsen. Fourteen pieces in all and for all to discover or rediscover choral music played with finesse, rigor, and voluptuousness by the group Schola Cantorum, firmly directed by Tone Bianca Sparre Dahl. In short, here is an SACD of the first order in an exemplary DXD sound recording, with as a bonus a pure audio Blu-ray. Who could ask for anything more?
