A mixture of christian music, secular pieces and improvisations. Performed by the The Danish National Vocal Ensemble and recorded in beautiful setting of the Copenhagen Cathedral in Danmark.

The Danish National Vocal Ensemble is an elite professional chamber choir, acclaimed internationally both for its virtuoso choral technique and the beauty of its transparent Nordic sound. Under the baton of Nigel Short they lead the audience through a "Meditation" programme.

Let the music take you on a mindful journey. Turn into yourself and feel the restful tones of the choir filling the room with calming music while letting all noise and stress from outside disappear.
