The Nordic Journey Series – Edited by James D. Hicks
This is a collection of organ music from the Nordic lands. These new compositions celebrate a culture that has one foot in tradition yet always looks ahead, placing the other foot on the path toward new expression. Here are contemporary works that have a foundation in traditional themes, but in addition take these concepts to new destinations. This is Nordic Journey, a voyage for both the performer and auditor.
Travel alongside these new works to gain a unique insight into the creativity that is now being realized in the Nordic World. It is an exciting time to be a part of this exploration!
Cantando invites you to consider this exciting new repertoire by living Nordic composers, music that expresses a unique interpretation of the contemporary Nordic spirit.
