MUSIC TO JOY AND FREEDOM
Christian IV Vocal Ensemble (Denmark)
Conductor: Ruben Munk
Music by: Josquin Desprez, Michael Praetorius, Mogens Pedersøn, Mikkel Andreassen, Arvo Pärt, Ēriks Ešenvalds.

Marking the beginning of the centenary of the Republic of Estonia, Christian IV Vocal Ensemble (Denmark) will perform concerts at Kuressaare Castle and Tallinn Dome Church. The programme is inspired by the period of the Reformation and thoughts of Luther – symbolizing ideas of freedom and independence central to the Republic of Estonia.

Christian IV Vocal Ensemble is named after the music-loving king of Denmark (1588-1648), who spent a period of his life on the island of Saaremaa. The ensemble was established in 2005 by conductor and harpsichordist Ruben Munk and unites 8 professional singers at international level from Denmark, Norway and Sweden. The repertoire includes renaissance a cappella music (1425-1625) as well as more contemporary works.
