John Quinn
MusicWeb International, April 2013

Ondine has done a terrific job in recording the music of the man considered by many to be Finland’s most important composer after Sibelius. Here, in this generously-filled set they bring together a substantial amount of [Rautavaara’s] choral music.

I should imagine that this is very taxing music but the performance by the Finnish Radio Chamber Choir under Timo Nuoranne is absolutely superb. The various soloists all sing very well and special mention should be made of Jyrki Korhonen, whose cavernous, imposing bass voice is ideal for this music.

The performances, mainly by the Finnish Radio Chamber Choir, are consistently very fine and the recorded sound is excellent throughout. The documentation is exemplary, including a very useful set of notes and all the texts with English translations. © 2013 MusicWeb International Read complete review
