This programme - which has been running since 1949 - is a comprehensive three-hour weekly round-up of new recordings and releases, reviews and features.
The Record Review disc of the week.
“The Danish National Vocal Ensemble, the professional choir of Danish Radio, effortlessly encompassing its demands and making it an intimate musical and spiritual experience in this new recording conducted by Marcus Creed.
I'd buy it just for the mass but you also get Martin's 'Songs of Ariel' and his Czech contemporary Bohuslav Martinu's 'Four Songs of the Virgin Mary'. And the recording ends with a beautifully-sung performance of Martinu's cantata 'Romance from the Dandelions'. The recording is as clearly focussed and well-balanced as the performances. 'The Secret Mass' is the title...far too good to keep it to yourself...". Andrew McGregor, April 14th2018
