Christiania Mannskor

Marius Skjolaas

“Something New”, the recent release by Christiania Mannskor, is nothing less than history’s first CD recording of new Norwegian music for male choir. The works on the CD were written over the last 40 years and reflect the desire of Christiania Mannskor to renew the male choir repertoire and make it more easily accessible for more singers, both in Oslo and throughout the country. The recording presents music spanning a broad range: from melodious Gregorian-inspired hymns via innovative choir sounds based on the best of the Norwegian choral tradition to a more modern, instrumental means of expression. The CD features works of Norwegian composers Jon Mostad, Bjørn Kruse, Henrik Ødegaard, Kjell Habbestad, Wolfgang Plagge, Knut Nystedt, Carl-Andreas Næss and Kjell Mørk, with texts by William Shakespeare, Rolf Jacobsen, and Henrik Ibsen among others

Christiania Mannskor

Christiania Mannskor was founded in 2009 and comprises both professional and semi-professional  singers  under  the  leadership  of  conductor Marius Skjølaas. In close association with the country’s leading composers, it is spearheading the effort to revitalize the male choir tradition in Norway. The choir has performed at the Nobel Peace Prize dinner and special occasions arranged by the Norwegian Government and Parliament. “Something New” is the first in a series of four recordings on the LAWO Classics label in which the titles allude to the traditional good-luck rhyme “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.”
