The Choir of Clare College, Cambridge’s new disc, Ice Land, will be released worldwide on Friday 11 February with Harmonia Mundi.
It features soprano Carolyn Sampson, the Dmitri Ensemble and conductor Graham Ross.
The programme sets out to explore and highlight Iceland’s hypnotic soundworld, instinctively leaning towards contemplation. A prime example is the touchingly beautiful Requiem by Sigurður Sævarsson, which here receives its world premiere recording.
The disc has been selected as Presto Music’s Recording of the Week.
