Press release from Surnadal Kulturhus:
At our annual New Year's concert with the soloists of Trondheim at the Museumsadal Culture House is our full hall. This boy probably does not have enough nights, also because the Trondheim Soloists themselves have the "local" composition of Henning Sommerro in the playground.
The "local" is visible in hermetic, because "Chrysillis" is a very musical song that follows the hymn. Thomas Kingo "travels" from Scotland, through Denmark and Sunndalen. Kingo took over the position of the late Danish priest, and the priesthood was on his way. It was Cille Blankenborg, daughter of a priest born in Sunndalen, and Kingo was more than overcome enthusiasm for a widow. He scraped at him the wonderful love poem "Chrysillis", but it did not last that long – Kingo every man next year. However, living together lasted long enough for Kingo to hear about him, and also, where there is a sign of the mountain, a powerful sunnd nature (see Text in the hymn "Now the sun pours out"). Henning Sommerro travels a bit in both Scottish and Danish and Norwegian songs with a deep stop for improvisations in the travel box.
Henning Sommerro wrote "Chrysillis" to Catriona McKay (Scottish harp) and Chris Stout (Shetlandsfele), and two Scottish musicians will play at a concert in Surnadal.
However, these two are not the only hospitable musicians. The Swedish violinist Cecilia Zilliacus is also involved, as well as spells of m. In. Sibelius, Britten and Järnefelt at the concert.
