Icelandic music of the last half century is the focus of this recording by the Choir of Clare College Cambridge, led by conductor Graham Ross. Born from his close collaboration with the native composers of the “Land of Fire and Ice,” this program sets out to explore and highlight their hypnotic sound world, instinctively leaning towards contemplation. A prime example is the touchingly beautiful Requiem by Sigurður Sævarsson, which here receives its world-premiere recording.
