Catalogue Number: 10J052
Description: Although these are choral works, they still use, like so much of Grieg's various other genres, Norwegian folk music and the springar and halling rhythms can be heard in Op. 30 (1878) and some of the children's songs (1894) are still sung today. This release also contains Grieg's last composition - the Psalms (poems by Norwegian authors, not taken from the Old Testament), which combine religious fervor with the same love of folk music harmonies. Norwegian-English texts. Grex Vocalis; Carl Høgset. SACD hybrid.
