Notes and Editorial Reviews

"When Norwegian Kjell Mørk Karlsen's large-scale St. Luke Passion concludes with the mourning mother of Jesus, it leaves a stronger impression. The composer takes seriously both the Easter Story-- wonderfully narrated by Nils Ole Oftebro--and the church music traditions he represents. That is a strength."

-- Astrid Kvalbein, Aftenposten

"Nils Ole Oftebro recites the Passion Story from the Gospel of Luke, chapters 22 and 23, accompanied by Tor Grønn at the organ, and the choir comments on the passages with a series of Latin hymns. The tonal language is cautiously free-tonal with associations suggesting Russian Orthodox church music and Gregorian song. The Bergen Cathedral Choir's
Read more articulation and sound are impressive, as usual."

-- Peter Larsen, Bergens Tidende
