X–mas concert

Wow, wow, wow!

On 10th December me, Mum and Bigsis went to Tønsberg to see Oslo Gospel Choir's Christmas Concert.

I think there was about 3500–4000 people there – everyone dressed up and looking Christmassy.

They sung lots of well-known Christmas songs such as En stjerne skinner i natt/A star is shining tonight (which Rev performed in Conventry Cathedral the week before), Alf Prøysens Romjulsdrøm, a medley of English Christmas carols, Oh Holy Night, etc. It was so beautiful. I gave up trying to count the number of times I had goose-bumps and chills going up and down my spine. I even had tears in my eyes as the choir and the whole audience stood up singing a Christmas hymn called Deilig er jorden/Earth is magnificent. I think it is more loved and cherished than our national anthem… It's the only song everyone stands up for no matter what.

Anyway… I had such a great time! If OGC comes anywhere near you, go and see them! It is worth having to live on pasta for a week to hear them live!

  1. Get them to come to the UK! Now! And do a workshop with Rev! OK not now, but in 2 weeks when I'm back! :D Glad to read you're having a good time back home! See you in 2005!
