Fennica Gehrman has released new publications of Urmas Sisask’s works for mixed choir. These include “Three Songs for mixed choir” (to Estonian poems), “Ten Fragments” (to charming texts by Hando Runnel) and the carol “Kui armsast jõulupuu nüüd hiilgab” (How Sweetly Shines the Christmas Tree).
The Estonian Urmas Sisask gained international recognition primarily as a choral composer. In 1988 Sisask finished Gloria Patri, his most famous choir piece consisting of 24 a cappella hymns on Latin texts for mixed chorus, based on the pentatonic Kumayoshi mode.
The scores are available for purchase at Fennica Gehrman’s web shop:
