The Cathedral choir from Bergen brings a programme of music which is arranged, written or improvised by the choir members themselves and showcases the rich talent of this group. With 36 voices this ensemble has a reputation for its vast range of repertoire ranging from Bach Passions to contemporary music. Under its award-winning young conductor this programme celebrates the impressive compositional talent within the choir and also exposes the singers’ improvisatory skills in music that reflects the western regions of Norway.
