KSS AND CONTEMPORARY MUSIC The Women’s Choral Society of the University of Oslo (KSS) — currently ranked as the world’s best female choir — is releasing its third album on the LAWO Classics label: “Kom regn”. This recording features Norwegian contemporary music for female choir, music with which the choir has been closely associated in the course of its history and which has in large measure accounted for its success. With this release the choir wishes to contribute to preserving and spreading the music of important contemporary Norwegian composers. The title “Kom regn” is taken from Fartein Valen’s work “Kom regn fra det høie” (”Come Rain From On High”), the CD’s opening track. Besides three motets for female choir by Valen, the recording consists of works by Arne Norheim, Knut Nystedt, Egil Hovland and Bjørn Kruse. These are all composers who have to a great extent shaped Norwegian choral music in the past century and whose works KSS hopes to make more accessible through its interpretations of this repertoire. The texts range from Shakespeare and traditional liturgy and hymns to Norwegian contemporary poets such as Stein Mehren and Paal-Helge Haugen. With this release KSS wishes to present the exciting and diverse music written for female choir in Norway over the past hundred years. The Women’s Choral Society of the University of Oslo (KSS), founded in 1895, is the world’s oldest academic female choir. Today KSS is one of Norway’s leading female choirs and is ranked by the music organisation Interkultur at the top of its list. The choir is led by conductor Marit Tøndel Bodsberg Weyde, one of Norway’s most up-and-coming young conductors. Under her direction, KSS has won major international competitions, including European Choir Games and Grand Prix of Nations.
