Latvia, A Nation Of Singers
Composer Gabriel Jackson: "And singing is what Latvians do. I don't know what percentage of the population is in a choir but it must be pretty high; it's certainly taken very seriously and every Latvian I know can sing, and does. ... But it's not just the ubiquity of singing and the skill of its practitioners that's impressive, it's the sheer sound of Latvian choirs that is so remarkable." Gramophone 01/07/13
