Christmas In Norway with the St. Olaf Choir

This Christmas special was filmed in Trondheim, Norway's magnificent Nidaros Dom cathedral, one of the oldest Gothic cathedrals in the world. Featured performers include the renowned voices of the St. Olaf Choir, the premier mixed voice choral ensemble from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, conducted by Anton Armstrong and Jentekor, the girl choir of Nidaros conducted by Anita Brevik. The program showcases the rich choral music traditions of two countries, presenting traditional Christmas hymns and carols in both Norwegian and English as well as accompaniment by a string quartet, piano, organ and Hardanger Fiddle, a traditional Norwegian instrument. The St. Olaf Choir, the pioneer a cappella choir in the U.S., has a long standing relationship with Norway, dating back to 1874 when St. Olaf College was founded by a group of Norwegian-American pastors.
