Kirke Aktuelt article on the Hymn Book Slow TV

Kirke Aktuelt - a Norwegian church website carries a lengthy article on the forthcoming NRK Salmeboka event in Trondheim; a section translated by Google Chrome browser (with a little alteration for a better sense) says:

"Helge Gudmundsen, familiar voice from Hymns at all times on Sunday night on NRK1, had the idea to do a slow television program devoted hymns. It will be broadcast from Our Lady's Church in Trondheim through the advent weekend, with interludes from other parts of the country... To be honest, I thought the very idea of ​​the program was so crazy that I did not think we would get it... with the response from across the country, I see that hymns are a common property. Hymns are part of the folk heritage and also many choirs, including the chimney business, located well outside the ecclesiastical landscape. But hymns they all relate to."

"Although the roughly 60-hour broadcast will primarily show the song and people from Trondheim... The idea is to cover various parts of the country, people, language and traditions, and the preliminary plan is to be in these places:

  • Finnmark: Karasjok
  • Troms Tromsø and Finnsnes
  • Rogaland Stavanger and Ulstein monastery
  • Hordaland: Bergen
  • Norway: Maihaugen in Lillehammer and Oslo, perhaps Grunerløkka
  • Østfold Halden and Fredrikstad"
