Editorial Reviews

In 2005, the renowned St Olaf Choir recorded "A St Olaf Christmas in Norway" with the Nidarosdomens Jentekor and esteemed soloist Randi Stene in Trondheim, Norway in the historic, 950 year old, Nidaros Catherdral. The recording honors Norway's 100 years of independence and celebrates the historic and cultural connections between St Olaf College and the country of Norway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Music befitting the Beautiful Savior December 19, 2006
The St. Olaf Choir, Band, and Orchestra (for those non-Nordic, non-Minnesotans happening to read this, St. Olaf College is in Northfield, Minnesota, and was founded by Norwegian Lutheran immigrants to the area) returned to their ancestral roots in 2005 and joined with the Nidarosdomens Jentekor (Whoa! My spell checker really doesn't like that one!) for a Christmas concert, beautifully captured by US Public Television. If you missed the telecasts of this gorgeous and blessed event, do not despair, there is a DVD (ASIN: B000EQH2MO) for your viewing and auditory pleasure. (If not currently available here, check with St. Olaf itself or PBS.) Included is the finale and piece de resistance, my all-time favorite hymn, Sibelius' *Beautiful Savior* that would awe even the most pagan.

Nonetheless, I do NOT like lutefisk (for those non-Nordics not living in close proximity to Scandinavian folk, this is a "delicacy" of fish soaked in lye, hopefully all washed off, then boiled to the appearance and consistency of congealed Vaseline, but smelling up the whole house a whole lot lingering worse.)

Get the CD & DVD. Skip the lutefisk, but lefse (potato tortilla) would be fitting and proper while enjoying this event. /TundraVision, Amazon Reviewer.
