The Women´s Choir of the University of Iceland conducted by Margrét Bóasdóttir prepares the premiere of the ten songs in the spring of 2017.

All the songs have been performed in public before as parts of the song cycles Seventeen Sonnets on the Philosophy of the Heart or Songs of Soaring Birds, with one exception. The new song is the Philosophy Sonnet, dedicated to the memory of philosophers Páll Skúlason og Thorsteinn Gylfason.

Hildigunnur Rúnarsdóttir arranged the songs for the women´s choir.
