Choral music has always played a major role in the work of the Latvian composer Peteris Vasks. In this piece, but also in his numerous instrumental works, themes such as home, nature, customs and traditions and the concept of freedom are of vital importance. The Latvian poem set to music by him is about the glorification of the sun; it could really be called 'song of the sun'. Vasks carefully uses modern techniques of choral singing as well and carries singers and listeners away into a scintillating, fascinating world of sound.
