Stay up to date with the latest releases of choral music with our weekly Choral Featured Album. Discover new works, new choirs, and new takes on your favorite choral music Fridays at 11 a.m. CST on the Choral Stream.

This week's Choral Featured Album comes from a land of frozen landscapes and longstanding choral tradition--no, not Minnesota, but Sweden!

Since its founding in 1957 under the baton of esteemed conductor Eric Ericson, the Uppsala Academic Chamber Choir has long championed contemporary choral works. The group's latest recording, Winter Sounds, features compositions by Eric Whitacre, Francis Poulenc, and Benny Andersson, and fresh new arrangements of familiar tunes appropriate for the colder months.
