Sibelius Music for male choir | Traditional Finnish Christmas music

The major tradition of male choirs in Finland inspired Sibelius to compose some of his best works, including the song Venematka, which he wrote when he was in his twenties. The premiere had ‘the effect of a bomb’, as Sibelius later recalled; and it triggered a flow of dazzling songs from his pen. A large selection of them can be heard in this concert, along with other gems from the Finnish choral repertoire.
