“Our intent was to show that there is darkness, poverty, alienation and death in store for the innocent child, the Son of God, lying there in a manger, who will later be crucified. Yet the Oratorio is also full of joy and praise!”
- Fredrik Sixten, composer
I’ve been lucky enough to have had a few of my works recorded by Sofia Vokalensemble, and every time I’m stunned by how they always capture the very essence of what I wanted to express with the pieces. They have such a rare, wonderful sound that is both precise and clear, yet amazingly warm. Sofia Vokalensemble is definitely one of my favorite choirs, worldwide. – Ola Gjeilo, composer

“A glorious collection of choral works from Britain and America… This disc will surely bring this wonderful music out of the darkness and into the light.” – Discovery Records
”en mycket vacker skiva …sångarna sprider en sådan säker, oerhört njutbar klang i ett genomgående stillsamt meditativt program där höjdpunkterna är i stort sett varje stycke!” – The Magazine Körsång, October 2003
