NORW AY, where its storm-browed and rampired coast­ lands breast the perpetual onslaught of her Northern ocean, belongs to the primordial data of Earth_ The land itself has an ageless and legendary complexion , a I-acial he ritage forever I-ich in prodigies of the buman mind and men's adventuring_

Again Norway has resumed ber place in the top rank among the nations. She has once more mothered a bost of eminent persons, including Statesmen, Explorers, scientists, scholars, and artists, together with great poets, novelists and dramatists ; also immortal music from the bands of ber composers.

Norway entered upon the arena of history with the advent of the Viking Age about tbe 7th century , AD_, its people pos­ sessing an advanced and original culture , with a long tradi­ tion of favored poets and a wealth of poetic expression_

This creative exuberance affected the dreams and aspira­ tions of people in every wa lk of life , The lyrics of the poets and the music of her mighty tune-smiths needed tbe voices of singers to be heard and appreciated. Soon every hamlet and town in the land were filled with song, and group-singing became a social and cultural asset to every community.

The great Mylhology of the Norse had a firm and abiding influence on men's lhoughts, way of life. and ambitions. Its numerous and restless pageantry of Divine Beings represented in their various aspects a spiritual affinity to the powers of nature and the complex forces of human life.

Wherever a Norwegian would fare in the world the song of Norway was dear to his heart. From lhe East Coast of America, and onward to the Middle-West, and finally to the Pacific Coast this heritage of music and song swept witb each succeeding wave of ,i mmigration.

Tbe introduction of Christianity in the 10th Century did not deter but rather heightened tbe almost explosive drive of the Viking Age, until its decline in the 12th Century. All through tbis great era of the North , Norway played her im­ portant role, which saw her ships widen the world's borders by discovery and settlement of new land~, a.nd the opening of sea-roads toward the West which dramatically affected the future of Europe and the rest of the world.

Male Chorus singing has been an integral part of Nor­ wegian affairs in all the Coast cities for almost three-fourths of a century, and continues as a n important factor in present­ ing and infusing a part of our cultural heritage into the life of our 'Vestern world.

Even today, in our modern age, her people seem still to possess some of lhe racial genius of the pa.st, together with the inherent quaiities of their natura l environments. They still know the cballenge and the irresistible lure of ships and 'Earth-embracing seas. About them is a trace reminiscent of steadfast mountains, the forest s and moors , the valleys and highland fells, and skerries and islands, and Northlands adrift on the bosom of time through SUlllmer a nd SUllo

Since the year of 1902, wben the different singing organi­ zations of the Coast organized the Pacific Coast Norwegian Singers Ass 'n, there have been successive Sangerfests spon­ sored every year. with few exceptions, in the various Coast cities, culminating- this yea r in Seattle, as the Fifty-First Sangerfest.

Program Notes

MIN DEILIGSTE TANKE. Most beautiful of Thoughts. The fading autumn leaves gather and spin them in , in my last song, most beauti­ ful of thoughts. Leaves of memory, though faded, they cheer me ­ most beautiful of thoughts.

ULABRAND. A song to the memory of the in­ trepid and fearless pilot Ulabrand, who gave his life in his heroic effort.

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 Bishop H. A. Brorson (1694­ 1722) . The music, a Norwegian folk song arranged by Grieg, is one of the finest exam­ ples of Norwegian sacred music.

VACKRA SKY. Beautiful Cloud whither goest thou? Beautiful Cloud.

• • • BRUDEFAERDEN I HARDANGER.

The Bridal Procession on the Hardangerfjord. The song describes the beautiful landscape, towering snow-clad cliffs and mountains, the deep blue of the fjord and the joyful singing of the Bridal Party.

HALLING. Hei , jump up and shout, and turn you about! Hei! KLARA STJAERNA. Twinkling Star in heaven's deep blue, do not hide your eye to me. To the realms where you shine my soul is longing. DEN STORE HVIDE FLOK, "THE GREAT WHITE HOST." Behold a Host arrayed in

JAEGERSANG. The hunter's song, and the sound of his horn floats through the forests re-echo­ ing in the stilly night. LANDKJENDING (Land-Sighting). The poem is by Norway's great writer Bjornson and the music by the immortal Grieg . It is one of the most popular male chorus songs in the world, depicting the young Hero-King Olav Tryg­ vason's return to his native Norway and 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 solo the King gives profound ex­ pression 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 mountains! His men intone the prayer, carrying the song to a grand soul stirring finish. (22 )

CONCERNING THE FRONT COVER History does not relate, nor does saga suggest that Leif Eriksson's striped-sailed Dragon ever reached our Pacific shores. Nevertheless, his descendants, as well as those of his Viking compatriots, invaded the area in vast numbers, found it beautiful and pleasing, and made it their home. Soon, through the efforts of a small group of these

de~cendants,

Leif's likeness,

as created by the skilled hands of our own director in chief, will be gazing regally across the waters of Puget Sound. Who can say: Perhaps his spirit will be aroused by Sangerfest tradition and will join lusty voice with ours in the beloved songs of the Northlallds.

* * * We wish to express our appreciation for the good wiU and support of friends, societies and business firms in making this program possible. This cooperation is necessary for a successful Sangerfest, and we are grateful for their assistance. Kindly help us show our appreciation by patronizing the firms which have given their support.
