Scenes from the composer's native Norway inspired this poem by Charles Anthony Silvestri. Barren and intensely beautiful, this Norwegian land feels sacred, a notion captured in Silvestri's lyrics. Gjeilo has created a stunning soundscape that will be a favorite of chorus. With piano accompaniment and optional string quartet (full score and string quartet parts available separately).
*ERRATA NOTE: Soprano 1 starting in measure 50 is a minor third too high. Soprano 1s should sing mm. 50-end a minor third lower, starting on a G (the piece ending on an F). The sample pages here and the digital PDF reflect the corrected version.
