Være I Stillheten –

After a good Hurtigkonsert yesterday, with an appreciative audience, we look forward to Være i Stillheten, tomorrow (Friday 5th August, 2016, 8pm, FInnsnes church).

Være i Stillheten (roughly translated as ‘be in quietness’), is the series of occasion ‘concerts’ we perform, with live music, syncronised to video and still pictures, set in a loose liturgical framework. The idea grew out of the Midday Musical Moments which we ran for nearly 4 years at Prince George, in the US.

As you can see from the poster, tomorrow is a bit of a family affair, with Susanna, Sarah and I playing / sing. Here is the program:


  • Mozart                 Piano sonata (K.309, 2nd mvt.)
  • Michael Card     Arise my love
  • Bach                     Schmücke dich, o liebe Seele (BWV 654)
  • Handel                 If God is for us (from Messiah)        
  • Sibelius                Einsames Leid (from Op. 51)
  • Brahms               Intermezzo No. 1 (Op. 117)
  • Debussy              Clair de lune (Suite Bergamasque nr.3)
  • Giordani             Caro mio ben
  • Grieg                   Med en primula varis
  • Golland              Peace
  • Blamire             Unresolved

For those who want an idea of what to expect, here is Einsames Leid. The video was shot on the top of Vassbruntind (the highest peak in our kommune). For those not familiar with Norwegian, the texts are from Mark 6:31 (Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.’), and Matthew 11:29 (Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.).

And, here is the promo video (music is Brahms, Intermezzo Op. No. 1):


Maybe see you tomorrow?
