Paul Hillier (conductor)

Paul Hillier and Ars Nova Copenhagen continue their exploration of Danish vocal music. The main feature of this album, Line Tjørnhøj's 'Vox Reportage', has been in close collaboration with the artists and merges different sources - including Nobel Prize winner Elias Canetti, Chelsea Manning and Rabi'ah al-Adawiyya - to create a 'reportage' human nature over the last thousand years. In Carl Nielsen's 'Three Motors', renaissance polyphony and the composer's more personal style form something fresh and powerful; The Swedish romantic composer Wilhelm Stenhammar sets music for Danish texts, while Vagn Holmboe puts music into British poetry. Everything on this album crosses limits in one way or the other!
