With this new release the Latvian Radio Choir together with its director Sigvards Kļava are returning to contemporary music after a series of recordings of 19th century sacred choral works. Ramon Humet’s (born 1968) new choral work, Llum, is a deep, spiritual journey to the gift of life, peace and love.
Humet’s Llum was premiered by the Latvian Radio Choir under Sigvards Kļava in Barcelona in March 2020. This 7-movement work is based on spiritual texts and poems by Vicenç Santamaria, a monk from the monastery of Monserrat in Catalunya and close friend of the composer. This timeless work is radiating serene joy and ends with an “Alleluia”. In this first recording, the Latvian Radio Choir under Sigvards Klava are offering an impressive account of this new 21st century choral work.
