Nordic Voices is an internationally acclaimed six-voice a cappella ensemble praised for the depth of its programming and its extraordinary vocal skills. A technically brilliant ensemble, Nordic Voices made a quick sensation in international vocal circles and is now acknowledged as a leader of the a cappella artform.
The group’s repertoire spans the Renaissance to the contemporary, on disc and in performances across Asia, Europe and North America. Nordic Voices is unrivaled in the fine art of sophisticated music-making and stylish performance, and as a result has been hailed by international critics for live appearances and remarkable recordings.

We are very excited to collaborate again with our friends from the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Washington, D.C. to celebrate some of the great Norwegian artists in early music. We will have three programs, one each from the Baroque, Renaissance, and medieval eras, and return to some old friends we have heard on the program before. Each week’s show will be posted for free listening, here on the front page.
The centerpiece of this series from Norway will be the wonderful ensemble Nordic Voices.
Of course, as always, our Platinum members will get a copy sent along for free.
Having had such success with this in December, we are also sending along a "Track of the Day" from Nordic Voices, featuring both their early music work and some more contemporary (but wonderful) Norwegian material.
None of the daily cuts will be heard on Millennium, so this will be fresh music every day!

Having worked with Norway and its people for so many years, it is a real joy to welcome them back; and very very special thanks to Nordic Voices. We spent Christmas with them a few years ago on the program, and have kept up with their work, but this a wonderful reminder of the artistic gifts these six (and their countless countrymen) have given to us all.
And now for this week's special free show:
#18-07 Norwegian Baroque
