This prize-winning Norwegian six-voice a capella vocal ensemble is considered one of the leading international ensembles in their genre. For this American appear-ance they present extraordinary polyphonic music of Tomás Luis de Victoria, the pre-eminent Spanish 16th century composer, whose music has moved people for more than 400 years. They also will feature some repertoire written expressly for them by Norwegian composers. The members have been performing together since 1996, when they met at the Norwegian Academy of Music.

 

“The music is sumptuously textured and elegantly phrased
in these gorgeous realisations.”

– BBC Music Magazine
