Our Classical Recording of the Month with McNally Robinson is back, with Cantus: Northern Lights.

Known for "Vuelie", the opening musical number of Disney's Frozen, the all-female Norwegian choir Cantus releases its Decca debut, Northern Lights, featuring "Vuelie" and other pieces of captivating Norwegian choral music. Cantus is made up of 30 singers from Trondheim, members are aged between 20 and 40, and range from students to nurses, to firefighters, teachers and architects.

Their outfits - called Bunads - are inspired the costumes in Frozen.

Cantus are an all-female choir, led by a female conductor.
