Some of his stuff doesn't really float my boat but I like enough to give it a trial listen at least!

Well - Palm Sunday, in the Christian calendar. Shall be in a Moslem country (Turkey) for Easter...& it's a nice peaceful Spring-like evening in UK (for a change !), so thought some reflective choral music would be nice with a glass of wine.
So, with Wine as a guide, went to W in my downloads, and picked out these Winners:
Julian Wachner - Missa Brevis
Kurt Weill - Recordare for choir
James Whitbourn - Requiem Canticorum
Harald Weiss - Requiem 'Schwarz vor Augen und es war Licht'

Last of these little concerts you'll have to put up with for a fortnight or so - actually, the aim is as much to provoke a 'let's find out about him/her' reaction as to promote whatever I happen to fancy listening to; not,sadly, too convinced it works or is appreciated.
Works from the Turkish neck of the woods:
Kareem Roustom (originally from Syria) - Double Concerto for Arabic violin, cello, percussion & string quartet 'Resonances'
Walid Gholmieh (Lebanon) - Symphony no. 4
Vassos Nicolau (Cyprus) - 'Ison' for choir
Martun Israelyan (Armenia) - Book of Autumn Songs for mezzo & orchestra
Giya Kancheli (Georgia) - 'Styx' for cello & orchestra
Hasan Alnar (Turkey) - Qanun Concerto 'Mesnevi'

Will be listening to many such on a Turkish beach (World War 3 permitting !) with a cocktail in hand over Easter - for which festival (to colleagues whom it affects) much happiness to all.

Scanning through list of Finnish composers https://core.musicfinland.fi/, listened to Pohjola, Kaipainen, Nuorvala, Sonninen, mostly thanks to YouTube or their websites, and many more to explore.

The most recent Dutton cd I acquired - because I missed it when it came out, though I was aware of the special qualities of Elis Pehkonen by that time (a very fine composer and one of the reasons I bought it):
