I'm listening to Christmas with Cantus live on Classical MPR right now, and one of the singers just mentioned how vital choral singing is to the culture of Estonia. He plugged a recent documentary on how choral music helped Estonia throw off Soviet control in the early 1990s. The film is called The Singing Revolution, and on the MPR blog Movie Natters, Euen Kerr wrote about it earlier this week. Read Euen's entry here.
