Mixed choir (SSAATBB)


by the Norwegian Academy of Music’s chamber choir


ca 4 min


This piece for choir was commissioned with the express wish for lyrics in Nynorsk. I used a very striking verse from Håvamål and combined it with politicians’ words – text that doesn’t hold up quite like Håvamål. The politicians’ words come from a session in The Norwegian Parliament (Stortinget) where members of parliament ask the ministers questions.

This piece is also suited for amateur choirs.

The title (Norwegian) is nonsense, but means something like gobbeldegook
