New recording of the Motet from my All Hallows Mass

Here is a new recording of the All Hallows Mass (Allehelgen-Messe) Motet "Alting har sin tid på jorden" ("Everything has its time on earth"), performed by Lise-Marie Groll (soprano), Bennie Sanden Reebirk (organ), and Klaus Munk-Nielsen (cello):

It's a "reduced version", as the full score calls for choir as well - but it works quite well even without, I think.

Download the score here (PDF). The text is by Iben Krogsdal and can be found here (in Danish).

Kind regards,

Absolutely gorgeous ... leaves me with goosebumps after listening - the soloist does an excellent delivery in tone and expression.

Was this recorded at Jørlunde Kirke?

Thank you, Lars! :) Indeed, I think the soprano (Lise-Marie Groll) does a very good job!

It wasn't recorded in Jørlunde though, as it's part of a new CD she releasing together with the organist in "Skelgårdskirken" in Copenhagen, Bennie Sanden Reebirk, containing French (and Danish) music for soprano and organ. Thus, it's recorded in that church. I did the recording myself, btw.

The organ is a Frobenius from 1992, and incidentally the specs happens to have been made by my old theory and composition-teacher Leif Thybo. A fine instrument in my opinion.
