5 out of 5 stars

My family decided to do as they were told this Christmas and got me Joy with Oslo Gospel Choir. I absolutely love it!

It is called "Joy" and rightly so – it puts me in a good mood! The cd has a good mixture of gospel, rap, ballads, etc. They have re-newed their sound without losing their characteristics. There are some new rythms that just groove. The music complements the texts, which are Christian without falling too much into worship. "Love is a wonderfule thing" is a beautiful ballad about love, not the icky sticky Hollywood love, but real love.

"A human right" has got lead-singers from Germany, the Netherlands and Norway. It is quite cool that they have several nationalities in a song with such a title!

I can absolutely recommend this cd! Not just because I am an OGC fan, but because it is genuinly a good cd that can cheer me up whenever!

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!

Oslo Gospel Choir

Writing about web page


Thought I'd blog about my favourite gospel choir apart from Rev instead of writing my essay on European Integration =P

They are a little bit older than Warwick Rev as they had their ten year anniversary a couple of years ago, which they celebrated by realeasing the cd 'Celebrations'. An excellent cd.

Most of their songs are written by Tore W. Aas, who happens to be their choirmaster. I met him once at a gospel choir festival for teenagers, a very nice guy! Another person that was present was Calvin Bridges, who has worked a lot with the choir along with another big man in the gospel world: Andre Crouch (hope I spelt his name right now!).

On 10th Dec I'm going to see them as they are coming to my home county of Vestfold . I cannot wait! And hopefully my Mum and Sis have taken the hint and bought me their new cd "Joy".

Oh! Rev is currently singing an OSG song: En stjerne skinner i natt/A star is shining tonight.

The lyrics are:


This is the holiest hour
Heaven is now in sight
Listen to bells that are chiming
Christmas has come tonight

Sweet are the voices high above
Singing of peace and of love
All of the world is filled with light
A star is shining tonight

A newborn baby is sleeping
Heaven is near, this night
The Lord has sent us to see Him
Under the star, so bright

Sweet are the voices high above
Singing of peace and of love
All of the world is filled with light
A star is shining tonight

Quietly resting among us
On Bethlehem’s golden straw
Night’s given way, as we’re standing
Watching this child with awe

Here, we can dream about that peace
Which has been lost for so long
Heaven has given us this child
And Earth is filled with song
