miraculum

Lumen Valo’s second Christmas record was chosen the Classical album of the year by Casa. Like its predecessor Mysterium, also Miraculum moves freely in place and time in search of essence of Christmas music. Compared to Mysterium, the emphasis is on Finnish and Russian Orthodox music, with a generous amount of western European tradition interwoven into the program. Mikko Sidoroff’s Pyhä yö, especially commissioned for this record, proved a hit from the start.
