Item Number: GI.WW1459
Language: English. Text by Charles Anthony Silvestri.
Scenes from the composer's native Norway - specifically the Hardangervidda mountain plateau - 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 your women's chorus. An excellent festival choice. With piano accompaniment and optional string quartet (full score and string quartet parts available separately). Duration: approx. 3:30.
