Oslo Philharmonic Choir performs music by Tveitt, Nystedt and Fauré in Trefoldighetskirken.
Velkomne med æra is one of Geirr Tveit´s most famous pieces and is based on a solemn welcome song from Tveitt´s family farm. The song has been arranged for, among other things, orchestra and piano, and is in this performance sung in a choral arrangement by Håkon Berge.
Immortal Bach is an arrangement by Knut Nystedt of J.S. Bach´s song Komm süßer Tod, komm selge Ruh for four-part choir. Then he makes a 20-part choir by dividing the choir into five and letting each group sing the arrangement in five different tempos. Knut Nystedts Prayers of Kirkegaard was written for the Norwegian Soloist´s Choir on the occasion of the choir´s 50th anniversary in 1999.
Gabriel Fauré`s Requiem from 1888 is the composer's most famous work and one of the world's most performed and popular works for choir and orchestra. While several well-known requiems (death masses) contain strong contrasts and intense movements about doomsday, Fauré´s music is characterized by calm, brighter moods and a positive view of life after death.
