Jazz Mass: Vendereis
A new mass by jazz pianist Helge Wahl Flatland
Jazz pianist Helge Wahl Flatland has composed a new mass setting, which will be performed this evening in Kongsberg Church. Together with an instrumental and vocal ensemble, Flatland will present jazz compositions inspired by traditional Norwegian music and church music.
Vendereis (“The return”) is based on the mass liturgy. In this service, it will be performed with instrumental music and new hymn arrangements. Experience the stillness, sound and peace of Kongsberg’s beautiful church.
There is no entry fee. The collection taken during the service will be donated to a project in Malawi run by SOS Barnebyer (SOS Children’s Villages).
