“This January (2013), I had the pleasure to conduct the first performance of a choral composition that I believe would give great pleasure to choirs of very different standards. And to audiences as well!! ‘O Magnum Mysterium’ by New Zealand composer Chris Artley is remarkable for its obvious charm, unity and beauty. It works fine and easily a cappella and creates a brilliant sound due to its well-balanced unity between the voices. It works fine for both smaller and larger ensembles.”

– Ebbe Munk, Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir in Denmark
