Much music and poetry has been written around the themes of faith and doubt. This is our point of departure. Throughout the millennia, humankind has fought over differences of religious, as well as nonreligious, conviction.

Yet hope is a fundamental aspect of any faith, a common resonance in spite of all differences. We have selected a variety of expressions of faith and doubt. Religious pieces from both Jewish and Christian traditions, mainly based on texts from outside the official liturgy and ceremony, are contrasted with pieces declaring faith in humankind and life before death.

Musically we have chosen to focus on contemporary music, through original compositions and new arrangements based on folk music. In an ever more interwoven world, where cultures and faiths intersect and clash to an everincreasing degree, we hope to lift up what unites us.

Press reviews

KlassiskMusikk

As one can hear from this award-winning group of 36 singers, the performances here are impeccable, and the sound is beautifully balanced and agile. […] Also, mezzo-soprano Mari Askvik creates the complicity of his folk-like chorus, a fine contrast in Andrew Smith’s Lighten our Darkness, and in Nystedt’s arrangement of Neslandskyrkja and Sommerros With Jesus will I fara (which here gets his third recording, so far as I know). Lawo’s recording is very clear and sensitive to the choral setting. This is a fascinating album.
