About the album

On their first release for LAWO Classics, vocal ensemble Consortium Vocale Oslo presents a rarely heard cultural treasure from medieval Norway. The “Historia Sancti Olavi” consists of around 30 pieces that for more than 300 years were sung on the feast day of St. Olaf, July 29. The present release is the most comprehensive recording of this material to date. “Historia Sancti Olavi” is unique in its status as a monumental music work from medieval Norway. This release represents an important contribution to our understanding of this era in Norwegian cultural history. Consortium Vocale Oslo is a male ensemble based at Oslo Cathedral. The group specializes in Gregorian chant under the leadership of Alexander M. Schweitzer, president of AISCGre, the International Association for Studies of Gregorian Chant.

Für dieses Aufnahme hat sich das Historia Sancti Olavi Consortium Vocale mit dem Ensemble Graces & Voices zusammengetan und ist Teil des EU-Programmes Lifelong Learning die Praxis des gregorianischen Choral auf nationaler Ebene zu untersuchen.
