Formed in 1996, Nordic Voices comprises six graduates from the Norwegian Academy of Music and the Norwegian Academy of Opera, who, in addition to their singing backgrounds, have a broad range of experience from choral conducting to teacher training and composition. It is perhaps this range of interests that leads them to explore a wider than usual spectrum of musical expression, from plainchant to new works commissioned from leading Norwegian composers; from the most sacred of religious texts to the strongly secular.
Prepare to be carried away by the other-worldly beauty of this six-voice a cappella ensemble. Their stunningly rich arrangements of centuries-old plainchant pieces and works commissioned from Norwegian composers reach a level of sheer beauty and artistry rarely heard. The program is about love, comfort and playfulness.
