Come and rediscover a piece of Swedish music history! Missa super Lauda Jerusalem by Bertil Kellner was probably created during the 1580s and is supposedly the first mass composed in Sweden. Also newly discovered chorales and songs in Swedish, German and Latin from Västerås Catherdral and Latin school from 1600. Ensemble Villancico, known for its ventures into early Latin American music, is back with an exquisite vocal ensemble accompanied by organ, under the direction of Peter Pontvik.
