Programme Note

JORDEN ER SOM ET BARN - for mixed choir an percussion ad lib. (1980)
The choral song ´Jorden er som et barn - ´Forårssang´(The Earth is like a Child – Spring song) was originally composed as a part of “Wie ein Kind” (2nd movement ) for mixed choir a cappella (1979-80), and was also integrated in “Frühlenz Tänze” for choir and percussion ensemble (1980).
The dancing, wavelike motifs in alto, tenor and bass derive from a special rhythm based on my so called infinity series, above which the sopranos sing their simple line (Sing to the earth..., the earth is singing).
“Jorden er som et barn” can be performed a cappella or with 2-3 percussionists (congas, hand drums or the like).
A German version (“Die Erde ist wie ein Kind”) with the original text by R.M. Rilke is available.
