About

‘The Christmas story has become a universal story in our time. It speaks of peace and reconciliation, love, hope and generosity, ideals we all can and ought to strive for, especially in a time when our part of the world is more turbulent and unpredictable than it has been for a long time.

‘But the Christmas carols speak of a light that is lit, offering hope to the world. The wish for peace and the call to look out for each other resonates more perceptibly at Christmas and must not be forgotten when the holiday is over. It is our hope that our album “Stille som sne” (Silent as Snow) can help us to remember these very things and continue to proclaim the message of peace on Earth in the title of the first KSS Christmas release, “Arme jord ha jolefred”.’


In 2020 the Women’s Choral Society of the University of Oslo (Kvindelige Studenters Sangforening KSS) is celebrating the 125th anniversary of its founding. The choir has always been committed to contributing to a diverse range of music for and by women.

Over the years the role of women has changed in this realm of music, as well as in the world at large, and the time has long passed that KSS has had to turn to the male repertoire to fill out its concert programme.

As a tribute to this progress, and as a further contribution to the stock of the Norwegian female choir repertoire, this album “Stille som sne” consists almost entirely of music arranged for KSS in recent yearson, focussing on Norwegian texts.
