Most Norwegians associate Sølvguttene primarily with Christmas. No wonder, they have sung carols to mark the beginning of Christmas since the 1960s. They are, however, active all year round. Any choir that is active throughout the year must have a broad repertoire well-suited for all seasons and occasions, and, as they have approximately 150 performances annually, spanning from weddings to funerals, receptions to masses, and long concerts to short stunts, their repertoire extends from pieces from the Early Middle Ages to contemporary works, by Norwegian and foreign composers, both sacred and profane.

“Sølvguttenes favoritter”, the choir’s first recording on the LAWO Classics label, features a large portion of its most current repertoire. Here you will find something for every musical taste, from Händel to Nystedt, and, hopefully, listeners will find their own favourites among the songs on the album. Enjoy!

Sølvguttene was founded by Torstein Grythe in 1940. The choir is an institution of Norwegian musical life and has received a number of national and international awards. It has performed together with international artists such as Kiri Te Kanawa and Barbara Hendrix and has had a close collaboration with Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, the Norwegian National Opera, the National Theatre, and Concerts Norway.
