CARL SUNDE 1In 1It1emoriam BORN-SANDEFJORD, NORWAY DIED-ON THE WAY TO NORWAY

- - JUNE 10th, 1863 - - - MAY 9th, 1936

Carl Sunde was one of the organizers of the first Norwe足 gian Singing Society of Seattle in 1889 and was thruout the years unti I his death an active member of that organ足 ization. He served several times as its president, many years as its treasurer and was an honorary member. In 1926 he was president of the Pacific Coast Norway Chorus which made a memorable tour to and through Norway. He was president of the Pacific Coast Norwegtan Singers Association for two years, 1916 and 1917, and was its treasurer for many years, which office he held at the time of his death. He was the wearer of a decoration for active participation in twenty-five Sangerfests. Carl Sunde was a staunch supporter of the singers in ~Ii of their endeavors and left behind him a host of friends. His passing left a void in the ranks of the Norwegian Male Chorus of Seattle and of the association and re足 moved an anchor to the past. His active work among the singers until the year of his death was a shining example of a true singer, friend and man.

TRADITIONS and HISTORY It is a fact, that the average student of music history, while well versed in the musical traditions of most civ­ ilized nations past and present and always ready to ex­ pound and enlarge upon THEORIES pertaining to music as an art among the ancients, nevertheless is quite ignor­ ant about FACTS anent music and musical instruments in Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Denmark, the common belief being that these countries in earlier times had no musical civilization. Let it be understood that the old nations of the North

have a musical tradition which is as rich and was as rich as that of any other country. And it is an old tradition indeed. We have in Nordic museums original bronze horns of exquisite workmanship and of great tonal beauty and range-the so-called "LUR." They are 3000 to 4000 years old and the oldest artistic musical instruments so far to be found in the world. The earliest written records of any historical value about music state clearly that harmony in its more primitive forms originated in the NORTH and was brought by the Vikings and other Nordic travelers to England and from there to the rest of the continent. THEY SANG IN HARMONY With such traditions it is no wonder that the Norse­ men are still in the foremost ranks, both as music lovers, composers and performers. Singing, and in particular male chorus singing. has a broad place in their daily musical life. Virtually every little community has its singing societies, and Sangerfests with massed choruses numbering from 5000 to 6000 men are realities. The composers of their songs are among' the greatest that these countries have produced. In N or-

way men like Grieg, Sinding, Svendsen, Kjerulf, Nord­ raak, Reissiger, Selmer, Borg and many others have given us male chorus compositions of lasting beauty; compcsitions that rightfully belong among the finest the world has produced in this form of music. This great musical inheritance the Norsemen brought with them to America . In this, their new home, they have carried on the rich traditions of their forefathers and have contributed honorably to make America the

greates t musical Nation of the world. Norwegian Male Choruses, numbering among them members of first, second and third generations are to be found wherever Norwegians have settled in the United States. These choruses are again united in larger asso­ ciations of which the Pacific Coast Norwegian Singers' Association is one. Chiefly through the efforts of Mr. F. A. Tomte, of Portland, Oregon, this organization was inaugurated in Seattle, Wash., in 1902 with Dr. Carlo Sperati as its first director in chief. He was succeeded by Rudolph Mpller , of Seattle, Wash. The present di­ rector in .c hief is Mr. George Johnson, of Tacoma. Wash. The first officers were John Norman (Everett) . presi­ den t; A. J. Thuland (Seattle) secretary, and Dr. A. O. Loe (Seattle) , treasurer. The first Sangerfest of the organization was held i~ Everett, Wash., in 1903. Since then Sangerfests have been held and celebrated in the principal cities on the P2cif:c Coast from Vancouver, B. C., to San Francisco. Calif.

The present Sang erfest in Seattle, Wash ., is the twen­

ty-ninth in the history of the Pacific Coast Norwegian Singers' Ass ociation.

PROGRAM NOTES Yarde. "The Beacon." Words by Per Sivle, music by Johannes Haarklou. History relates that the Norwegian King Haakon the Good (919 -961) gave order to build great beacons on th e highest mountain p eaks throughout Norway. They were only to be lit in case of foes entering the country. Thus the ominous mes sage could reach from the f cuthernmc st point of Norway all the way to North Cape within seven nights. In rousing words the poen paints a picture of the awakening at night of each man! The Beacon is Burning!! No need of telling them the foe is entering the Fatherland. They rush to the de­ fense of home and country , and the hapless foe shall taste what it means to be the cause of Burning Beacons. Still, though no beacons are burning on the mountain tops they burn in the hearts of Nor­ way's youth. It burns! Burns!- The powerful musical setting has made the song one of the mos t beloved of Norwegian choral music.

the poem , 10 are u s ed in this musical setting by Rudolph MoHer. The song is dedicated to the Norwegian Singing Society of Seattle, Wash. Ncrges Fjelde. "Norway's Mountains." Text by Wergeland, music by Kjerulf. Norway's stronghold and protection as of old are its mountains bold . Frowning death is hiding in the caverns deep. Bea­ cons bright watch will keep day and night. Never more shall war and strife disturb the peaceful life. And the old bear hunter may put his rifle away. In his hut a garland shall bloom, and a toast he s hall drink t o Mountain and Home!

Morgenvandring. "Morning Wand ering. " Words by Holdt, music by th e Dane, F. Schmidt A song in march tempo teHing how wonder­ ful it is in the early morning to leave the slumbering city and march (orth in the awaken in g nature

Baadn-Laat." Nursery Rhyme ." This humorous piece is a little Norwegian Folk Song, a Children's Ditty. The setting is by Grieg in his own inimitable style and shows his mastery in male chorus arrangement. The besom lies in the closet. The cat is drumming and four mice are dancing, so the whole earth is shaking. The cat sits on the roof speaking to its daughters: " How shaH we keep our feet dry, our paws are freezing ?" We shall travel to Denmark and buy shoes for two bits, and corn and gingersnaps. Meow!

Paa Sang er t og. " Singers' Proce ssion." In June, 1863, the 5th Na­ tional Sangerfest wa s celebrated at Bergen, Norway. Henrik Ibsen , then 35 years old , came along with singers from Southeastern Nor­ way and up to Bergen. The trip along the coast with the happy sing­ ers made a d eep impressi on on Ibsen, and the result was the beautiful poem " Paa S O! nger t o f; ." It d e p :cts the journey among th e islands and through t he fjords in the beautiful Sunday m orning with song and music. It tells a bout the lonely fisher sitting far out on one of the skerrie3, lis t ening , watching and wondering, forgetting time and place but rea Ezing scme th ing grand passed by. Of the 14 verses in

Den store hvide flok. " The great white Host." Behold a Host arrayed in white, like thousand snow-clad mountains bright. Their voices they in worship raise, before the throne of God , mid Angels' song of praise! This religious poem is from the prolific pen of the Bis hop H . A . Brorson (1694-1722.) Several Norwegian Folk Melodies, greatly varying, are to be found to this text, but Grieg selected the one used here and arranged it for baritone solo with male chorus ac­ companiment. Of the three verses of the song only the first is used in this setting which has long since become a g reat favorite with all male choruses.

PROGRAM NOTES Tord Folesson. Poem by Per Sivle, mu!c by Gomnes. In the year 1030 en Wednesday, July 29th, the Norwegian King, Saint Olav, with army of 3600 men, were overwhelmed by his N orwe­ gian and Danish foes numbering 14,400 men, in the Battle of Stikla­ stadir. King Canute the Mighty of Denmark and England as well as the Danish bi c: hop Sigurd had aroused many of the Norwegian gentry and yeomanry against St. Olav. The song itself describes the battle but is mostly a tribute to St. Olav's standard bearer Tord Folesson. When in the midst of the b a ttle Tord received his death wound he rushed forward .through the ranks of the foes and drove the standard pole into the ground where it remained standing, after which he sank dying to the ground. He was followed in death a few moments later b y St. Olav. The song ends with these significant words : "Thus must always that man do who carries the standard of Progress for N 01'­ way. For this is sublime: The banner stands though the bearer falls!"

the King gives profound expression for his belief, that here was home, and here he would raise the Cross which should lift his spirit high and strong like the mighty glittering mountains! And his men intone the prayer carrying the song to a grand soul stirring finish.

Vikingarne. "The V ik in gs." This number is frem an Opera by the

Swedish composer F. A. Frieberg. T h e soloist urges the Vikin g s to a rise from a life of ease and languor and set forth to heroic deeds. The chorus of V ikings takes u p the strain and in ringing tones sings to the glory of Battle w hether against man o r the elements. Victo ­ rious they shall return to their home in the N orth. Landkjending. " Land-Sighting." The poem is by Norway's great

writer Bjornson and the music by the immortal Grieg. It is one of th e m ost popular male chorus songs in the world, depicting the young H ere-King Oiav Trygv;;.son's return to loi s n3.tive No r way 3.nd the first impression of land he and his followers got from the gleaming mountain peaks and thundering waterfalls as they sailed in through the deep blue fjords in the shimmering sunlit air. In the baritone solo

Olav Trygvason. Poem by Bjorn30n, music by Reissiger. It is perhaps the favorite of all the Norwegian male chorus songs, and hardly a cencert is given without its appearance on the program. The epic background of the song is the Naval Battle fought at the peninsula of Svold, off the German-Baltic coast in the year 1000, where the famous Norwegian Hero-K:ng Olav Trygvason fell against his combined Norwegian, Danish and Swedish foes . His Dragon Ship, the "Long Serpent," the most famous of all Viking ships, was taken-and Olav Try,;vason, wounded, jumped overboard and disappeared. But the song itself deals with King Olav's Earl, Erling Skjalgson and his men , who with 56 I:ghter warships had out­ sailed the 11 heavier Dragon Ships of the King, and unaware of the sad fate of their beloved Hero were laying waiting for him-in vain.

And then from the depth of the ocean, like a sigh, came the message carr:ed by sobbing waves to the waiting men: "Taken is the Long Serpent! Fallen is Olav Trygvason!" Vackra Sky. "Beautiful Cloud." This charming song is by the

Swedish composer Brolen. Beautiful cloud! Whither goest thou,

whither shalt thou find peace and rest? Shalt thou fade and disapt> ~ ar? P.eautiful cloud, beautiful cloud! Suomis Sang. "Song of Finland." Words by Pacous. Listen to the song from Wainos runic Fang from forests and waterfalls! It is Sumois thy heart listen in joy or sadness. It is Sumois

Quanten, music by halls! Listen to the song. Brother! Let song!
