|This CD contains live recordings with The Stockholm Boys´ Choir from Gustaf Vasa Church, from the Stockholm Concert Hall and from a tour in Italy during the choir´s 70th anniversary in 2008. The choice of music has deliberately been made in order to show the width of the choir´s repertoire and includes two remarkable premiers, composed by Hans-Ola Ericsson and Carl Unander-Scharin.|
The Boys Choir is nowadays associated with classical choir music in an English tradition, a change which was made possible by allowing the men’s choir to become a permanent part of the choir. Earlier the men’s choir had only accompanied the boys’ choir on certain occasions. By uniting boys’ and men’s voices at the same time as alto boys were exchanged for counter tenors, conductor Roland Nilsson gave The Stockholm Boys’ Choir a new tonal identity, a new timbre that opened the way to a new exciting repertoire.
Each year the choir gives a large number of concerts in Sweden, participate on TV and
at the Opera House in Stockholm. The choir also goes on tour regularly. The choir has
visited USA and most countries in Europe several times.
