Programme Note

London chamber choir Londinium opens its tenth-anniversary season by marking 150 years since the births of two great Nordic composers, Jean Sibelius and Carl Nielsen. Although known primarily for their symphonies, both wrote beautiful and characterful choral music; the selection includes Sibelius' haunting Rakastava (The Lover) and Nielsen's intense Tre Motetter. Alongside these works Londinium performs ravishing music by Peter Lange-Müller, Wilhelm Stenhammar and Toivo Kuula - composers hardly known to UK audiences - before concluding the programme with the classic Lorca Suite by Einojuhani Rautavaara.
