A full house  in Brummundal church this time as well:
brought a Christmas mood.

Popular: "Stille Natt Hellige Natt" and Elisabeth Andreassen and Rune Larsen are popular in Brumunddal.

The popular Christmas concert “Stille Natt Hellige Natt” of course visited Brumunddal Church this year too.

400 people visited the church on Saturday to attend the concert which this year consisted of Rune Larsen, Tor Endresen, Elisabeth Andreassen, Marian Aas Hansen and Alexander Rybak.

“I have the impression that this is a very popular bunch. People say it’s part of their Christmas to attend this concert”, says sexton Johannes Høisveen to Ringsaker Blad.

But it`s not only the bunch who have become popular amongst the inhabitants of Brummundal, it’s the other way around too. “I guess we’ve taken care of them and treated them in a down to earth manner. I think they have enjoyed that”, says Høisveen.

Høisveen actually invited the whole bunch to dinner before the concert. “It’s a cosy event that they enjoy. They are easy to deal with”, he asserts.

“Julekveldsvisa” is always included when the concert is held in Brumunddal. In addition we got to hear well known and popular Christmas songs, and there was a sing-along, because the people in Brumunddal are good at it, Rune Larsen declares.

Violinist- They make changes during the years and this year they have brought along Alexander Rybak.
