This is not all Christmas music so I plan to enjoy it year-round. It is beautifully filmed in the spectacular Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, Norway. Two choirs of beautiful young people; the St Olaf Choir from Northfield MN and the Girl's Choir of the Cathedral in Trondheim perform separately and together.

The combined choirs' performance of "The Word Was God" by Rosephanye Powell blew me away and convinced me I had to have this. Had never heard it, and have found several other perfomances since, but none to compare with this.

I have the CD to play in the car, and highly recommend both it and the DVD for the lush photography.

I requested this CD for a birthday present and was so disappointed with the quality of recording. It is the same music from the broadcast on TV but the sound on the TV broadcast was of a different quality completely. I cannot recommend this CD! Buy the DVD or Blu-ray and play it and listen to it, I guess. Of course since I don't own the DVD or Blu-ray I can't verify that it's any good either. I do know that the broadcast on PBS was great quality. So glad we had a DVR. I hope St Olaf's choir knows about this poor quality.

        After watching "Christmas in Norway" on PBS, I was so intrigued with the music that I had to purchase the CD. I plan on ordering a couple more CDs for 2015 Christmas gifts!

              This is by far one of my favorite Christmas CDs. If you enjoy choral music, do not hesitate to add this to your collection.

                    This was the perfect CD to play softly when people were over during the holiday--but it is beautiful anytime. I rated this a 4 instead of 5 because after seeing the broadcast, I missed the video part.

                          Parents sung in St Olaf Choir. Have listened to many recordings.
