MALE CHOIR AND MILITARY BAND There are no earlier recordings of most of the pieces on this album, and it is uncertain whether or not some were ever performed again after being premiered. This makes it all the more satisfying to shed light on them now in the hope that they may once again find their way back into concert programmes. The combination of band and male choir is perhaps not so common today, but it was rather widespread around 1900. The repertoire consists in the main of music written for solemn occasions. The choice of pure wind instruments in addition to the choir probably was due to both acoustic and meteorological considerations related to performances usually held outdoors. Leif Arne Pedersen, principal conductor and artistic director of the Royal Norwegian Air Force Band since 2011, began his professional career as clarinettist of the Staff Band of the Norwegian Armed Forces. In recent years, Pedersen has fashioned a career as conductor. The Royal Norwegian Air Force Band was established in 2006, yet it will celebrate its bicentenary in 2018. Founded in 1818 as the Band of the Trondhjem Brigade, and later called the Band of the Fifth Division and the Band of the Armed Forces Trøndelag, it was for over one hundred years Trondheim’s only professional ensemble. Christiania Mannskor was founded in 2009 and is made up of 18 professional singers under the direction of conductor Marius Skjølaas. The ensemble is dedicated to the renewal and revitalisation of men’s choir singing in Norway and has regular concert engagements in Oslo and countrywide.
