The premiere recording of Kim André Arnesen’s Holy Spirit Mass is released by Decca Classics on Good Friday, 2 April 2021. Arnesen’s works have crossed oceans and continents, with “rapturous” (New York Times) performances for the likes of former President Barack Obama. Already one of the world’s most performed living composers, his scores have become mainstays of both amateur and professional choral repertoire.
Holy Spirit Mass is a recent work for choir, string ensemble and piano, commissioned in 2017 for the National Lutheran Choir in America’s Nordic heartland, Minnesota, to mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. This world premiere recording features Swedish conductor Sofi Jeannin, Trondheim Vocal Ensemble and the world-renowned Trondheim Soloists.
