"The group’s bright, forward sound might leave you wanting something darker and more plaintive for Pärt, but everthing else is hard to find fault with."

About the album

Christiania Mannskor was established in 2009 and is dedicated to the renewal and revitalization of men’s choir singing in Norway. The ensemble works closely with several of the country’s leading composers, and works with both old and new compositions for men’s choir in an attempt to make the genre more accessible to the people of Oslo and across the country. The group is made up of eighteen professional singers. “Something Blue” is the ensemble’s second recording of Norwegian music on the LAWO Classics label. Their first release, “Something New,” was the first in the series of what will be four albums and consists only of works by Norwegian composers written in the past twenty years.
Christiania Mannskor wurde 2009 gegründet und widmet sich der Erneuerung und Revitalisierung des Männerchorgesangs in Norwegen. "Something Blue" ist die zweite Aufnahme des norwegischen Ensembles auf dem Label LAWO Classics.


Christiania Mannskor is made up of 18 professional singers under the direction of conductor Marius Skjølaas. The ensemble has regular concert engagements in Oslo and countrywide and has performed at the invitation of the Norwegian government and parliament in connection with, among other things, the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Christiania Mannskor wishes to be an active and effective resource for Norwegian choirs, singers, composers and conductors with a focus on music for men’s choir, and we attach special importance to working with amateur and local choirs in our performances and on concert tours.


The group’s bright, forward sound might leave you wanting something darker and more plaintive for Pärt, but everthing else is hard to find fault with.
