Ubi Caritas
The Spheres
The Ground

Voices - Piano - Strings

A rising composers debut release on a major label, Gjeilos album on Decca is an important release of heavenly, bewitching, eternal new choral music for our time.
Composer Ola Gjeilo draws on influences from his Nordic background to conjure modern choral music of exceptional beauty.
Radiant vocal textures are enhanced by transcendental instrumental additions; a twinkling piano performed by Ola himself; captivating, exquisite strings; and bewitching acoustic guitar
Ethereal yet tangible, this is music with wide appeal; music of purity and beauty; music at once restful and uplifting.
Gjeilo pronounced Yay-lo has evolved a musical style which is at once contemporary and familiar. His concentrated harmonies and rich textures combined with graceful, engaging melody, contain echoes of Morten Lauridsen, Eric Whitacre, and the best luscious film score.
Influenced by improvisers, along with composers such as John Adams, Desplat, Newman, Marinelli, Williams, Elgar, Vaughan-Williams and Tavener, Ola describes his music as a lyrical mix of improvisation and classical, and others often describe it as cinematic... evocative, lush, story-telling...
