Melodies of the Heart is an initiative in honour of H.C. Andersen, who had a 200 years anniversary in 2005. The danish choral association “Kor 72” wanted to a part of the festivities by commissioning new choral pieces, suitable for their members.

 

Chance had it so, that some of theese choirs had participated in the festival “Holmboe i Horsens”, where my piece A time for Everything participated (and indeed won two prizes). It therefore felt naturally to pull also me in on that project.

 

I chose one of the fairytales I didn’t know of before, Spørg Ama’rmor (“Ask Ama’rmum”). It is a teasing text about an old carrot who wants to marry a young one. During the wedding party, however, he jumps to high and falls flat to the ground, dead, -much to the enjoyment of everyone else!
