The vocal group Concert Clemens have just released their new CD with Christmas arrangement by different composers on Orchid Classics. My arrangement of Veni, Veni Immanuel is one of the arrangements on the CD. Thank you to Carsten Seyer-Hansen and Concert Clemens for this opportunity. The CD can be bought at Amazon, Naxos, iTunes or by contacting Concert Clemens here.

Great reviews of BEINTA!
5 hearts out of 6 in Politiken with the words: “[…] a piece for orchestra, that deserves to be heard much more than the premiere at SPOT Festival.” 5 stars out of 6 in Nordjyske with the words: “When the strings droned and the horns roared and the rhythm decreased it was so magnificent that the jaw dropped all the way to the floor. The 40 minutes went by way too fast.” 4 stars out of 6 in Stiften with the words: “Very interesting and very skilfully made.”
