Per Nørgård : Julens glæde - Himmelfalden


Work Notes from: "KORBOGEN/THE CHORAL BOOK - 45 choral ballads, songs and motets for mixed choir" (1952-1992). Ed. Ivan Hansen (1992) The Choral Book presents a selection of shorter choral pieces by Per Nørgård, easier than the longer and more demanding choral works like “Wie ein Kind”, “Frost Psalm”, Ut Rosa”, “Mythic Morning” a.o.

Programme Note

JULENS GLÆDE – HIMMELFALDEN (1985). For mixed choir.
The choral song “Julens Glæde - Himmelfalden” (Christmas´ Joy – from Heaven fallen), was composed for Christmas 1985, and later integrated in three Christmas pieces by me: “Landskab med hyrer” (Landscape with shepherds), “Lille Julekantate (Small Christmas Cantata) and “Pastorella” (all 2006) – pastoral music, based on the Christmas hymn, composed to a poem in Danish by the priest, poet, writer (and more) Johannes Møllehave, about God seeing the often overseen (the child in the cradle, the poor Joseph and May, the shepherds), that night in Bethlehem.
