Unafraid of lyrical sentimentality

Ola Gjeilo, born this day in 1978, composes music that we can love on first hearing.

Tundra shows off the pure and flawless voices of the Gondwana Children’s choir of Australia

O Magnum Mysterium, performed by the Phoenix Chorale, is gorgeous (if not mysterious).

Sunrise Mass, performed by Choir of Vilnius, radiates peace, pregnant with possibility. Listen when you have time to let the music wash over you.
