International award-winning girls' concert choir Carmina Slovenika ("Slovenian songs"), under the direction of beautiful, talented conductor Karmina Silec, bring us another exquisite collection of songs. While "Citira" concentrated on works by Slovenian composers, Veljo Tormis' "Lauliku Lapsepoli" (The Bard's Childhood) and Randovan Gobec's Ne ouri, ne sejaj" are the only Estonian songs here. Instead we have Pablo Casals' "Nigra Sum," the spirited, rhythmic "Aires de Quisqueya" from the island of Santa Domingo, Herman Rechberger's eclectic "Postojna," Benjamin Britten's "This Little Babe," Stephen Hatfield's "African Celebration" and his Inuit chant "Nukapinguac," Eduardo Lakscehewitz' fiery Brazilian "Sambalele," Jean Sibelius' "Finlandia Hymn" and the lovely and timely "Let there be peace on earth." Some light accompaniment. There's a wonderful photo in the liner notes of the girls dressed as Greek maidens scanning the horizon for their loves' return. "Sledimo soncu" is a spirited treat from beginning to end by one of our favorite international girls' choirs.
