Arranged by: Ars Nova Copenhagen

Music from the dark South and the sunny North. Or is it the other way around... a programme that presents some of the finest vocal music by composers Victoria, Rautavaara, Macmillan, Maxwell-Davies and more. A programme of joyful tunes and dark lament, music from the world of God, Godly creatures and mythology to the dayly strife of life as it is with love, anger and what lies inbetween.
