This new recording features spiritual compositions of Czech artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries performed by the internationally renowned Czech Philharmonic Choir of Brno. Bohuslav Martinu's "The Mountain of Three Lights" and "Hymn to St. James" have been rarely recorded, and are therefore of special notice on this release. World premiere recordings by Petr Reznicek and Petr Fiala are also featured- "Dies irae," and "Regina coeli laetare," respectively. ""After all my experience at home and abroad, after many concerts in various parts of the world I can say with full responsibility and conviction that at present the Czech Philharmonic Choir of Brno is clearly the best choir in the Czech Republic and one of the best choirs in Europe. Your presence at first-class stages and podiums, top-class festivals and prestigious concerts, cooperation with the best orchestras and conductors proves your quality. I am proud of the fact that this choir is at home in Brno."" (Petr Altrichter - ex-chief conductor, Brno Philharmonic).
