This recording features Norway's three most important "national" songs for use on ceremonial occasions and international events, such as national commemoration days, state visits, sporting events and other competitions or arrangements hosted by Norway or where Norway is participating. Different versions of "Ja, vi elsker dette landet" (the national anthem) and "Gud signe vårt dyre fedreland" have been recorded, offering a choice over the number of verses and over whether a choir is included or not.
