The double CD “Historia Sancti Olavi” presents a rarely heard cultural treasure from medieval Norway. The “Historia Sancti Olavi” consists of around 30 pieces that for more than 300 years were sung on the feast day of St Olaf, July 29. The present release is the most comprehensive recording of this material to date.
The CD was recorded together with „Consortium Vocale“ – a male ensemble based at Oslo Cathedral (Norway). The group specializes in Gregorian chant under the leadership of Alexander M. Schweitzer, president of AISCGre, the International Association for Studies of Gregorian Chant.
