The title refers to the passage of seasons and the songs are thematically grouped into four seasonal themes, with a cheeringly generous emphasis on summer. Not many of the songs – or their poetic originals – will be familiar to a non-Danish audience. Kaj Munk’s Den blå anemone, set by Egil Harder, is an early standout and delivered with bright and you might say springlike energy by the smallish but beautifully balanced choir. Bo Holten knows most of this material intimately, and it shows. The words are delivered with care and clarity, while allowing the musicality of the setting to shine through.
