EIDSBERG: Alexander Rybak, Maria Haukaas Mittet, Mariann Aas Hansen, Hans Petter Moen and Rune Larsen are this year’s musicians and in Eidsberg church this Saturday they met a full house. They both sang and spoke about Christmas and its meaning and message.
Rune Larsen accounted for most of the talking, and talked about how Christmas is associated with joy.
– We mostly associate Christmas with joy, at least while we are children, Christmas is a joyful feast. But there are also some who dread Christmas, perhaps because you have lost someone youhave great Christmas memories with. This year I will celebrate my first Christmas without my mother. And there are not many Christmas songs on this subject. Marian will now perform a brand new song, which deals with just that, Rune said. And Marian performed “År for år” (Year by year).
The concert was varied in terms of music and performing with both Norwegian and English songs, and the hit “Feliz Navidad”, but they also varied singing solo, in groups or with all five, and also did sing along.
– In fact, I think we have never had such a good sing along audience before, said Rybak.
