I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me learn about traditional Nordic songs for this time of year!

This tune is SO beautiful, I have to learn it! 

I'm not sure if "Höken" (Hawk?) is a traditional one for Christmas in Sweden, or not - but I found it on Barry Phillips' "Colonial Christmas" album. 

 

 

"Jul, Jul, Strålande Jul" (Christmas, Christmas, Brilliant Christmas) must be sung and played at this time of year! 

 

 

"Himlen Hänger Stjärnsvart" (The Sky Rests Starry Black) - performed by Christoffer Nordenström.

Christmas Carols from Sweden - Stella Chamber Choir - Playlist

 

"Staffansvisan" (?)  

 

 

I'm finding this one interesting, "Å Jänta å jag" - from the God Jul album.

@Ilona -

 

Kjell Magne Robak is a full-time Cellist in Norway. 

Norwegian tune, "Det Lyser I Stille Grender" - some harmonics played on CELLO!

 

"Nordnorsk Julesalme" (Northern Norwegian Christmas Hymn). 

 

 

A Norwegian Christmas song called "Musevisa" (The Mouse Song).

Here are couple of my absolute favourite Christmas songs!

First one is ”Joululaulu” (Christmas song) by Konsta Jylhä. I loooove this! ❤️ The lyrics are very sad, but the melody is so, so beautiful. 

 

”Taivas sylissäni” (Himlen i min famn/ The heaven on my arms) is actually a Swedish song but very popular also in Finland. 

 

”Rauhaa, vain rauhaa” (Peace, only peace) by Ahti Sonninen. In this video the first song, and the cellist is my teacher. ❤️

 

And then a bonus. 😄 On Sunday next week my chamber orchestra will play traditional Christmas songs at church. I will be there and this concert will be streamed on YouTube! 🤩 It’s at 7PM Finland’s time so not so bad time in the US, but you can of course watch it also later.

Thank you!
