Easter concert 2018

See dates and tickets

As in previous years, we mark the start of Easter with a concert at the Bodø Cathedral.

This year we will perform the German romantic composer Felix Mendelssohn’s work Lobgesang (Hymn of Praise) together with the Bodø Cathedral Choir. The work was written to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the invention of printing in 1840. After the composer’s death, it was also published as his Symphony No. 2. He described the work as a Symphony Cantata, and it was extremely popular in his age.
