The latest release from Norwegian-born composer Ola Gjeilo is our CD of the Week this week on Classical 90.5. The composer performs his works with a trio of ensembles on the self-titled release.
Over eleven tracks, contemporary choral ensembles Voces8 and Tenebrae perform works by Gjeilo with accompaniment from the Chamber Orchestra of London. The lush and down-tempo works are by turns ethereal and meditative. We'll feature tracks from the Decca release during this week's Contemplative Point Thursday at noon and on this Friday's Morning Classics between 7:00 and 9:00 a.m. on Classical 90.5FM.
