Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir
Paul Hillier (conductor)
Paul Hillier leads the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir in Volume 1 of Baltic Voices - a three-year project to explore the choral riches of the Baltic Sea countries. With a special attention to the choir's native Estonia, these recordings will highlight the mainstream tradition of the past hundred years, complemented with music of earlier periods and commissions from younger composers. Volume 1 features secular and sacred works by 20th-century composers from Sweden, Finland, Latvia, and Estonia.
