Here is the full “Stille Natt Hellige Natt” ensemble in front of a statue of Jesus in the Immanuel church on Friday evening. They left behind an echo after they continued on

Christmas mood a la Larsen


Early Friday night the Christmas concert “Stille Natt Hellige Natt” was back at the Immanuel church in Halden. There, an unusually packed church waited for Rune Larsen & Co.

An evening for emotions

Christmas has been called a magnifying glass. The joy gets bigger but so does the sorrow, said Rune Larsen when he created the Christmas mood for a sold out Trinity Church.

The church seats are seldom more packed with the exception of Christmas Eve. This is also true for the Trinity Church in Arendal last night. The audience filled up the gallery too and extra chairs had to be placed in the church. Continue reading Review of the Christmas concert with Alexander Rybak in Arendal, Norway.

The frozen wind swept souls that blew into the cathedral on Wednesday night found a quiet moment to laugh at life’s storms.
Molde, Norway: Rune Larsen, Elisabeth Andreassen, Marian Aas Hansen, Tor Endresen and Alexander Rybak performed both together and individually a solid pre-Christmas program, packed with well-known and beloved Christmas carols and spiced up with more unknown material. The approximate 500 attendees in the cathedral on this windswept pre-Christmas night would hardly regret this visit.
