For centuries, hymns have transported people through grief, joy, faith and doubt, in everyday life and in times of celebration. The rich treasury of words and music in our hymn book seeks to preserve and renew tradition. It is a tradition that is far from static, evolving through new interpretations by composers, poets and performers of today. On this recording the three composers Marcus Paus, Marianne Reidarsdatter Eriksen and Morten Christophersen contribute new works based on old hymns. It is here that the hymn tradition reveals its strength, and old words are discovered anew through new arrangements and compositions.

HIMMELBORGEN is the conceptual sequel to HIMMELRAND (Best Choral Performance 59th GRAMMY Nominee) 

Music and arrangements by Samuel Sebastian Wesley, Marcus Paus, Charles Henry Purday, Trond Hans Farner Kverno, Christian Sinding, Eyvind Alnæs, Johann Sebastian Bach, Hans Leo Hassler, Johannes Brahms, Marianne Reidarsdatter Eriksen, Oddmund Åvik, Kåre Nordstoga, Elisabeth Holte, Thomas John Williams, Henrik Ødegaard, Egil Hovland, Hans Thomissøn, Christopher Ernst, Frederik Weyse and Bjørn Morten Christophersen.
