  • Riga Chamber Choir AVE SOL,conductor Imants Kokars.Recorded at the Church of St. Francis in Riga.
    This CD presents folkloric works for choir written by Latvian composers during the period 1966-1990, a selection of songs from the 9th volume of the Anthology of Latvian Choral Music. This was a period when Eastern and Central European countries experienced the so-called new wave of folklore. In their treatment and choice of folk music material, composers began to favour elements from the deeper, more ancient layers of folklore, and give priority to lasting values: man's close affiliation with nature and work, and the endless cycle of life and nature affirmed through seasonal and family ritual songs. Younger generation composers found the improvisational nature of folk music well suited to modern compositional techniques, and revealed musical possibilities hither to unexplored in folklore.
