Danish National Children's Choir  

ensemble

The Danish National Childrens Choir consists of about 50 girls and boys between the ages of 9 and 11. The choir gives concerts with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra and the Danish National Girls’ Choir, but also sings at independent events. In 2002 and 2004 the Danish National Childrens Choir appeared for example in the chamber choir Camerata’s performance of J.S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion. In 2003 the Danish National Children’s Choir sang and the Danmarks Radio ‘Seedling Choir’ sang on a CD of Michael Bojesen’s ‘ABC Songs’.

Carl Nielsen sunget af DRs kor
“The hero of Dacapo’s recent recording of Nielsen’s ensemble songs isn’t so much the composer himself as DR (…) whose comprehensive upward-feeding choral system is profiled in its entirety here. Denmark is singing very well, and with a system like this, will continue to do so.”

Carl Nielsen sunget af DRs kor
"This is a very fine selection of Nielsen’s often neglected songs bringing together Denmark’s finest national choirs. They are beautifully recorded in the fine acoustic of the Garnisons Church, Copenhagen."
