BalticVoicesBaltic Voices 3; performed by Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, Paul Hillier ★★★★

This is a hodge-podge of music written by contemporary classical style composers, including Górecki and others. The CD is now the third in a series (so far) of three discs, the first two not being immediately available. I love the modern eastern block compositions as representing original styles yet pleasing to the listening ear, not as harsh or wierd as contemporary western composers and their atonal or experimental music. Hillier does a masterful job of conducting. This will probably not make anyone’s top 10 list, yet is a delightful addition to the classical repertoire.
