Meins Lebens Licht
Conceived as homage from the Norwegian Soloists' Choir to the man who founded it in 1950 and remained it's leader for 40 years, Knut Nystedt who passed away in December 2014, at the age of 99. Alongside the two Bach motets here featuring the choir along with Ensemble Allegria and Maria Angelika Carlsen on violin solo, among Nystedt's repertoire with the choir, the collection also prominently features four works of Nystedt's, including O Crux (1977) which Nystedt regarded as one of his main works. The choir provides an ineffable epitaph to Nystedt's legacy with this release, together with Grete Pedersen, Nystedt's successor as artistic leader of the choir. Recorded in Super Audio.
