The multi-award-winning Latvian composer Eriks Esenvalds' 21st-century choral sound is both exquisite and angular, and in this album he explores ideas of 'translation,' legend and the divine. With his expanded tonality and employment of shimmering singing hand bells in 'Translation,' and the angelic use of the viola and cello in 'In paradisum' he creates music of ravishing refinement. In 'Legend of the Walled-In Woman' Esenvalds transcribes and employs an authentic Albanian folk song.
