Knut Nystedt: Torø liti

"Torø liti" is a folk song from Valdres, Norway, arranged by Knut Nystedt, and is one of the pieces from his "Five folk songs for female choir". The text describes how a dying girl doesn't want to die but wishes to continue living. The piece is a part of the Norwegian Girls' Choir's new folk music album, which is being recorded now to be published by 2L in 2016. The Norwegian Girls' Choir was established as the Norwegian Broadcasting's Girls' Choir in 1947. The choir has specialized in contemporary and folk music, and regularly commissions music for its own repertoire. The Norwegian Girls' Choir consists of four choirs with girls from six to 22 years old. The current recording is with voices from the oldest singers, the Studio Choir. The Norwegian Girls' Choir is conducted by Anne Karin Sundal-Ask. "Torø liti" is released on Knut Nystedt's 100 years anniversary, September 3, 2015, as a homage to a fantastic composer and in gratitude for his great arrangements and compositions for female choirs.


Duva settø seg på liljankvist,
Gud at råde.
Ho syngø så vakkert um Jesus Krist,
Herre Gud, sende oss sin nåde.

Å højr du Torø liti, e tala te de,
Gud at råde
Å lyste du fylgji or lande mæ me?
Herre Gud, sende oss sin nåde.

Kors kan e fara åt fylgji mæ de,
Gud at råde.
Ein kungesån i Engeland ha beyla te me,
Herre Gud, give oss sin nåde.

"Torø liti" er en folketone fra Valdres arrangert av Knut Nystedt, hentet fra hans "Five folk songs for female choir". Teksten beskriver hvordan en dødssyk jente ikke vil dø, men vil fortsette å leve. Dette stykket er en del av Det Norske Jentekors folkemusikkalbum som er under innspilling. Det Norske Jentekor ble etablert som NRKs Jentekor i 1947. Koret har spesialisert seg på samtidsmusikk og folkemusikk, og bestiller mye musikk, både samtidsmusikk og folkemusikkarrangement. Koret består av fire kor med jenter fra seks til 22 år. På denne plata er det Studiokoret, med de eldste jentene, som synger. Koret dirigeres av Anne Karin Sundal-Ask. "Torø Liti" utgis 3. september 2015 på Knut Nystedts 100-årsdag, som en hyllest til en fantastisk komponist og med takk for strålende arrangement og komposisjoner for kvinnekor.
