Footprint is delighted to release the debut recording from Harlanda Chamber Choir in the ensemble’s tenth anniversary year. ‘A bright star shineth’ is an atmospheric celebration of Christmas music from throughout Europe from the Sixteenth Century to present day. This recording charts a Christmas journey from France to Iceland, via England, Wales, Ireland and of course Sweden. Traditional songs in alluring arrangements by Åke Hillerud and John Rutter and more are heard alongside original compositions by the likes of Francis Poulenc, Thomas Tallis and Morten Lauridsen. The choir pays homage to its own roots with a traditional song from the Halland Province, ‘Guds son är född’ (arranged by Otto Olsson). Two premiere recordings from Scandinavian composers complete the picture: Ola Gjeilo’s striking ‘Det hev ei rose sprunge’ and Anna Cederberg-Orreteg’s emotive interpretation of Sibelius’s ‘Julvisa.’ With fulsome, warm singing and careful direction from Molin, ‘A bright star shineth’ combines head and heart this festive season, “our birthday gift to ourselves and a Christmas present to the world,” in the choir’s own words.
