It was a long time ago since I purchased the first volume of the Baltic Voices series with Paul Hillier and the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir; it was thus with great enthusiasm that I purchased Vol. 2, and my expectations were enthusiastically met. I can wholeheartedly second reviewer J D Wilder's positive review, and would recommend any person who appreciates choral music in all its forms to obtain this CD.

My favorites are the Winter Hymn, the Grigorjeva and the Schnittke selections, though the other tracks featured on this disc deserve acclaim just as much, if only for the fact that the choir performs indefatigably throughout! If you are looking for choir music that emulates a variety of moods and never really ceases to be ethereal and relaxing, I highly recommend this CD. And if you have started with Vol. 1 of the series, the purchase of this CD is practically not up for debate.

The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir with Paul Hillier was memorable in the first Baltic Voices recording, so it would be hard to say that they have outdone themselves, but they have come close. They have discovered many composers-many very worthy composers-to the world in this recording. The Choir is brilliant and the very talented Mr. Hillier puts them to excellent use. They can make anything sound good, but with this music, they almost don't need to try. The music by Galina Grigorjeva was the most stunning, but I also found the Schnittke delightful. These two recordings are for anyone who wants to hear the beautiful things going on in modern choral music.

Format: MP3 Music
In this, the second of three entries in the Baltic Voices series, the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir takes a look at contemporary sacred choral music from a broad range of composers ranging from the late Alfred Schnittke (Russia) to the Danish master Per Nørgård. The Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox faiths are represented. Every piece on here is a gem, but let me say upfront: this recording is worth owning just to hear this version and recording of Nørgård's "Winter Hymn," which contains some of the most beautiful melodies and harmonies I've ever heard in a choral composition.

The production values on this Harmonia Mundi release are just breathtaking. The choir sounds deep and full without being splashy.

The selection of pieces is perfect - not a single track feels saccharine or platitudinous. The excerpts from Sisask's Gloria Patria explore a beautiful scale taken from an analysis of the planets, with the quietly intense 'Oremus' (let us pray) being the magnificent centerpiece. Tulev's "And then in silence there with me be only You" is a haunting devotional to the Virgin Mary. The above mentioned "Winter Hymn" is a dialogue between two of Nørgård own original hymn tunes. Grigorjeva's "On Leaving" is a mystical modern example of the Orthodox tradition of the 'choral concerto,' while Schnittke's Three Sacred Hymns, written in a single night, forgo that composer's typical eclecticism for simple, lyrical expressions of faith.

Unfortunately, the Sisask and the Grigorjeva are only represented by a selection of movements. I do not know for what reason the cuts were made or how much was cut, or if the unrecorded material is equally worth listening to. But what is here helps the album be well balanced and feels complete as a musical statement.
