This new release features works for children's choir by Einojuhani Rautavaara, performed by the world-renowned Tapiola Choir and their director Pasi Hyokki. Mostly written for the Tapiola Choir, these pieces cover a wide range of topics and moods, extending from humorous nursery rhymes to more serious philosophical issues and religious solemnity. The album title piece, the one-act choral opera Marjatta matala neiti ("Marjatta the Lowly Maiden"), is based on a poem from the Kalevala epos. The half-hour"mystery play" tells the story of Marjatta who becomes impregnated after eating a lingonberry and gives birth to a son - thus the Finnish mythological adaptation of the Christian story of Jesus' conception and birth from a virgin. Finnish cult composer Rautavaara is one of the rare composers to have written extensive and substantial repertoire for children's choir. More generally, his major output for mixed and for male choir has cemented his position as one of today's most popular composers of choral music.
