Nidaros Cathedral Choir invites you to enjoy the wonderful
ambience of the Nidaros Cathedral. This is the first ever surround
sound recording of music performed in the cathedral, allowing
you to experience the reverberations of this magnificent space.
The choir has commissioned a number of new choral works during
the last decade. This recording gives you samples of this, of which
the majority have not previously been recorded. The repertoire
spans from music composed for national events, to music composed for concerts or services.
Under the musical direction of Vivianne Sydnes, the choir
presents music by both young and more established Norwegian
composers, including Ståle Kleiberg, Henning Sommerro, Torbjørn
Dyrud, Andrew Smith, Odd Johan Overøye, Ludvig Nielsen, Per
Fridtjov Bonsaksen and Wolfgang Plagge.
