Swedish male choir awarded Gold Record

A Gold Record is an achievement for any artist. For a Classical artist or recording it’s rare, but for a male choir it’s unique! The Lund University Male Voice Choir from southern Sweden celebrates its 175th anniversary with the release of an album of traditional Spring songs, and the success is instant! When the CD hits the stores this week, it will come in already rated as a Gold Record, with over 12.000 pre-order sales.

Founded in 1831, it is one of Sweden’s oldest choirs and already has several successful recordings under its belt, yet this golden achievement is a first. Naxos is pleased to announce that this successful cooperation will continue, with the Choir already contracted for a Christmas recording, slated for release in Fall 2006. Come and hear what everyone’s listening to as one of the finest Scandinavian choirs celebrates Spring!
