Info for Jolasong



In the course of preparations to record my album, «Spill og Dans», featuring the piano music of Johannes M. Rivertz (1902–1988), I discovered a number of manuscripts – simple arrangements of familiar Christmas carols that the composer had left behind. These little pieces sounded beautiful in a church setting. And so the idea of this Christmas album was born.

There was a time when Fartein Valen’s arrangements of Christmas carols could often be found on pianos and organs in community centres and private homes. And this is still true in many places. Likewise, Rudolph Magnus Forwald’s paraphrases of Christmas melodies have become part of our common heritage. Other Norwegian composers from different periods are represented here as well. It is the simplicity of the arrangements that distinguishes them all.

We hope you will find delight in the interplay of text, melody, and harmony. Most of the texts are familiar, and those included here are the basis of the two Christmas melodies by David Monrad Johansen.

Rune Alver, piano
Toralv Maurstad, narrator
