Review By Dan Morgan,MusicWeb International,September 2012

First impressions are promising, this mixed chorus singing with a cool, far-reaching purity…

Three of the four miniatures that make up the Silent Songs are by Knuts Skujenieks…The poems are gnomic, and the slow, rarefied vocal writing is both stoic and deeply affecting. Choral discipline and blend—so vital in music of sustained loveliness—are superb. Even in this frigid landscape beauty still blossoms; ‘sleep, sleep’ is soft and plangent, ‘three forests’ icily brilliant. What a range of emotion lurks behind these notes, and how well this choir articulates them.
