Northern Lights is about beauty. Gjeilo speaks of the awesome beauty of the aurora borealis, the Northern Lights. Gjeilo does a great job using the Latin text. It pulls the listener through a series of wonderful suspensions and presents some musical challenges to the ensemble, but again, well worth the effort.
