The Danish composer Peter Heise (1830-79) was a master of writing for singing voices. In his quartets and choral songs for male voices we meet Romanticism in its clearest form with songs about women, art, nature and his native country. The gentle, pure tone of the music is excellently handled by the male voices of the Danish National Vocal Ensemble and Choir and not least by the conductor Michael Schønwandt, who has cherished a lifelong love of Danish Golden Age music.
