Flytten valde oss/Flight Sought Us out (3 Choirs SATB Choir SATB with soli )

Composer Tormod Tvete Vik, in collaboration with Bo Ejeby Förlag, invites you to join a global virtual choir recording of "Flight sought us out" (Flykten Valde oss). Be part of a global Youtube choir performance by recording one of the tutti parts at home alongside the prerecorded soloists of VOX Vocal Quartet of Sweden.

Flight sought us out is a “walking choral piece” for three choirs SATB or choir SATB with soli, based on a the Swedish poem "Flykten valde oss" by Stig Dagerman, translated to English by Sven Smedberg. Initially published in 1953, the lyrics deal with a burning subject, and it is shaped musically by employing the choirs’ positions and movements in relation to the natural acoustics of the room.

The work was commissioned by the Nääs Choral Festival outside Gothenburg 2017 in collaboration with Körcentrum Väst, where it was premiered in Swedish by local choirs conducted by Gunno Palmquist.

This project is supported by Göteborg Stad (Pronto) and Ejeby Förlag.
