Got hold of a most interesting CD. Choral music by JS. includes Saarella Palaa [Fire on the Island' [1895, arr.1904] which is the title of the CD. The Dominante Choir is directed by Seppo Murto.
Most of the pieces are new to me, apart from'Rakastava' [The Lover] JS 160C, 1893 rev. 1898. Anyone only familier with the later orchestral version should investigate this. The disc also includes two other pieces that I do know. 'Sydameni Laulu' [Song of my Heart] 1898, arr.1904 and of course 'Finlandia Hymn', 1899, arr. 1948. The disc contains some delightful discoveries including 'Men from Land and Sea' op.65a, 1911 and even three Italian Folk Song arrangements, JS99 [1897-98] The soloists are Monica Groop, Jorma Hynninen, Folke Grasbeck and Harri Viitanen. Strongly recommended--kp
