FESTIVAL HIGH MASS IN OSLO CATHEDRAL
At the festival High Mass we experience Bergen Cathedral Choir and Oslo Cathedral Choir with Bergen Cathedral cantor Sigurd Melvær Øgaard, under the direction of the choirs' conductors Kjetil Almenning and Vivianne Sydnes. Together they perform Charles-Marie Widor's (1844–1937) Messe à deux chœurs et deux orgues (Mass for two choirs and two organs). The presiding priests are Elisabeth Thorsen, Jonas Lind Aase, and Maria Halldén, and cathedral cantor Kåre Nordstoga also contributes. Coffee is served after the High Mass and a lecture held by Marianne Aasen from the CICERO Center for International Climate Research.
