Welcome to the concert with Vokal Nord!
Conductor Bjørn Andor Drage will guide us through a great repertoire, which this time has a great focus on religious music from the Middle Ages to our time. The hymn Rex Olavus about King Olav is a Gregorian hymn. This was the church music of that time over a thousand years ago. Organist is Johannes Geffert
We will also hear classic works from Purcell and Duflé, among others. Music of more recent date will be Egil Hovlands “Bli hos oss”, a great motet for choir and organ.
Hymns and folk tunes from the northern part of the country will also be represented at this concert.
About the choir Vokal Nord:
The choir Vokal Nord from Tromsø has for several years distinguished itself as one of the country’s foremost vocal ensembles.
At the forefront is artistic director Bjørn Andor Drage from Salten, who leads the choir through both classical masterpieces, traditional music from the High North or modern, newly written works. The choir is based in Tromsø, but has singers from all over the country – especially from the northern part of the country.
