The Student Union Choir of the University of Turku, i.e. the TYY Choir released its fifth album on 20 November 2008. The album is called Valoa (which means "Light") and it is intended for both Finnish and international listeners. The CD lyrics are in both Finnish and English.
The album is the official Christmas album of Christmas City 2008 and it is a combination of traditional Christmas carrols arranged especially for the TYY Choir, the Christmas season's international art music both a cappella and accompanied by a string orchestra.
In 2004, after three published records, the choir turned to new classical choir music. "Pikavuaro Turkku", the fourth of the choir's records, illustrates the theme of longing with the works of Heiniö, Kuuskankare, Poulenc and Pärt, and the poems of Heli Laaksonen. The record, unique in its content, includes songs both with and without lyrics, and poetry both recited and chanted.
