Elektra is thrilled to announce the release of the world premiere audio recording of Ola Gjeilo’s new treble version of Northern Lights.  Written for and dedicated to Elektra by Gjeilo in 2014 and given its world premiere by the choir in November, this work is a stunning addition to the repertoire for women’s choirs.  Says Gjeilo, “I’m very excited and honored to have the women’s choir arrangement of my “Northern Lights” be given its first recording by the excellent Elektra Women’s Choir. I immediately thought of Elektra when looking for a group to premiere and record it, and the back and forth with conductor Morna Edmundson, tweaking the arrangement through several versions, was such a rewarding and creative process – resulting in the arrangement you’ll hear in this recording.” See here for purchasing this single track from iTunes!
