Wandering Heart includes five world premiere recordings, including the title work by Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds with texts by Leonard Cohen.
My cycle of three songs to words of Leonard Cohen has become, in the voices of Chor Leoni and through the hands of Erick Lichte, like a symphony with a true orchestral, multi-dimensional depth. – Ēriks Ešenvalds

Composer Ēriks Ešenvalds added this in his notes about Wandering Heart:
Wandering Heart is a symphony where the instruments — the real Canadian singing men — have opened the books of their life-stories. We can hear pages from their childhoods, sweet memories, their first-love stories, their life-long dreams and their destinies.
We are extremely proud of this recording, Chor Leoni’s first since 2011 and the first under Artistic Director Erick Lichte. Check out the track samples on the CD page and pre-order now!
