First performance of large oratory

2023-10-16, Cathedral of Lund, Sweden

First performance of ”vid porten” a new oratory for the 900 year anniversary of the Cathedral of Lund. Composed for three choirs, solo soprano, electronics and a small symphonic orchestra. The performing choirs have uniquely taken an active part in the actual composition process, as well as contributing to parts of the lyrics. However, most of the lyrics is written by Swedish poet Åsa Maria Kraft, including a new hymn to the church. The project is commmissioned by the Cathedral and funded by the Stiftelsen Signatur
