Euroradio Day Of Holy Week Music: Choral Music From Latvia and Denmark

Lit candles in a church

Hannah French continues with a celebration of the European Broadcasting Union’s annual Holy Week Music Day on Palm Sunday with a selection of Easter music specially recorded by ensembles from across Europe.

This selection includes a concert of contemporary choral music from Riga Cathedral in Latvia, which celebrates both physical light and the Christ light as a symbol, and features a new work by Anna Veismane.

We also hear a concert given by the Danish National Vocal Ensemble conducted by David Hill, performing sacred music from the last 500 years, including works by Renaissance master Josquin des Prez through to contemporary composer Dobrinka Tabakova.
