Discography

Lunta (2015)

Lunta is the second Christmas record of Joy-choir and it is based on their Christmas concert repertoire of 2014. The title simply refers to snow: that magical white substance which every year brings the season’s mood to each and every heart.

The selection of music echoes this wide range of moods. From the peaceful hymns of Sibelius and cheerful carols of John Rutter to the more modern pieces such as the energetic work of the young composer Kalle Ruusukallio. There are classics that evoke the holidays of old along with some entirely new music for the adventurous listener.

kansi_valkovillaValkovilla (1996)

In Spring 1995 Joy Choir performed music from play Raivaajaeepos that was written by Seppo Lappalainen and composed by Carlos Sedano.

The next year our choir faced a huge challenge. The music of the successful Raivaajaeepos play was decided to be recorded together with Carlos Sedano. This work produced a CD and C cassette called Valkovilla.

This recording contains 22 songs performed by solistists, the choir and an orchestra.
