Church in Denmark

I’ve been spending this week in Århus, Denmark with Cantus Aeterna, a project by “Ung Kirkesang”, the Norwegian organisation for sustaining and promoting chamber/church-music-activities among youth. The idea behind the choir is to be the representational choir of Ung Kirkesang, consisting of young’ish singers from all over Norway. I’ve felt very fortunate to have had the opportunity to be a member of the choir since it’s conception in 2005.

Henry: “Hmmm, that would actually be quite useful, provided someone could make it work.”
John: “Meh, I’m sure someone has thought of it already.” continue reading »
