#koraleriet sings Den Signade Dag

Posted on Updated on

Last Sunday we, five of nine singers from #koraleriet, sang chorales at the medieval inspired service in Heliga Kors church in Ronneby.

One of the chorales sung was the all-time-high-hit Den Signade Dag, which oldest found transmission in writing is dated to 1450.This chorale has been sung continuously for hundreds of years and ties together catholicism and protestantism.

Our version of melody was noted down by Nils Stålberg, and sung to him by Ingrid Isaksson, who lived in a small cottage in the village Röaby, some km north of Bräkne-Hoby in Blekinge.

The musical arrangements are made by Kristin Borgehed,after detailed analyses of how melody interacts with pronunciation patterns in that very local dialect.

Singers: Kristin Borgehed, Astrid Selling, Lisa Stormlod, Emma Feldmanis, Linnea Gustafsson
