Advent Calendar 2008

December 6th

Fanny Elsta (1899-1978) made her debut as opera singer in 1932, followed by engagements at Wiener Staatsoper, The Salzburg Festival, and at the bayreuth Festival. She recorded much religious music as well as opera arias.

Here, she performs one of the most beloved Nordic Christmas songs, Christopher Ernst Friedrich Weyse's Du grønne glitrende tre, Goddag (Greetings to the Christmas Tree). The record is Columbia GN 122 with matrix number WN 412-1, published in the second half of the 1930's. The orchestra is conducted by Arild Sandvold, at the time precentor of the Oslo Cathedral.
