Late Summer Festival | The woman who shocked the Vatican

Come to the Late Summer Festival and experience the concert ‘The Woman Who Shocked the Vatican’

A unique musical journey that starts with Lasse Thoresen’s ‘Himmelske Fader’ for chamber choir and ‘Vare jo’ for joik and chamber choir. The meditative choral works of the Renaissance lead us to the work by Norwegian composer Cecilie Ore from “The Vatican Trilogy.” This work tells the fascinating story of the female pope who shocked her contemporaries—one of the most remarkable tales in history.

Anette Slaatto, recognized for her acclaimed recording of all Bach’s suites for cello arranged for viola several years ago, returns to enchant us with solo Bach.

The broad spectrum of the program ranges from choral works from the time Christianity reached Norway to the subsequent Renaissance period to Bach’s profound works for a single cello arranged for viola. It ends with Cecilie Ore’s almost harrowing tones that bring us back to the present.
