By Michael Allen
"Just occasionally, very occasionally, one comes across music that makes one ask the question: Where has this composer been all my life? In the case of Bo Holten it is a question relatively easy to answer since he is already well known in England as a choral conductor, particularly of the BBC Singers... if you love music that is gratefully written for the voice, harmonically rich, and accessible without being derivative - then this CD should have a big appeal... As might be expected, the BBC Singers are on fine form for their guest conductor, the composer himself. The recording is warm and spacious, and I can do nothing but give this CD of wonderful music the most enthusiastic recommendation. The booklet notes describe Bo Holten as "...the man with many hats..." - let's hope that he wears his composing hat on a much more regular basis."
