Mish Mash Music Reviews, September 2008

The cover art of Hanne Orvad's Corona is a fantastic introduction to the works held within. It depicts an abstract space-scape, splashed with hazy gradient colors that reach out into the void. Orvad's music does much the same thing, only with a cappella vocal choirs that paint pictures in the ethereal darkness of aural space. Coronais a collection of Orvad's works from 1991 to 2003, as performed by the Danish National Vocal Ensemble, Danish National Chamber Choir, and Danish National Girls' Choir. Orvad uses their choral voices in place of instruments…concentrating on the sounds of the words as they're being sung…The overall effect is atmospheric and expansive like the openness of space, voices rising and drifting into the openness with a light and airy dissipation…you can picture a choir performing inside a great cathedral, with voices filling up and echoing across an enormous physical space.
