Print Friendly Page 
Nidarosdomens Guttekor The Nidaros Cathedral Boys' Choir (Nidarosdomens Guttekor) in Trondheim represents a tradition of boy and men cathedral choristers stretching back almost 900 years.
As of today, the choir is one of the leading boys' choirs in Europe and has built an international reputation through tours, performances in radio and TV, as well as numerous CDrecordings.
The choir has performed at a multitude of countries and cities. Yet it is in the Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim the choir has its base. Here it regularly takes part in services and gives its own concerts.
The choir performs a great variety of music, ranging from Gregorian to modern music, also includingnumerous greater works for choir and orchestra. The choir has participated at many great events such as the consecration of King Harald and Queen Sonja, and the wedding of Princess Märtha Louise and Mr. Ari Behn. The choir has twice met with the Pope.

Bjørn Moe is a professor of music at the University of Trondheim, where he specializes in the education of future choir leaders. His own musical career started at the age of 8 as a young soprana in the boys` choir. Since then, he has risen in the ranks, and has been the conductor of the choir since 1973. He is widely recognized as one of the leading choir trainers in Norway, and for this work he was in 2002 awarded the King`s medal in gold.
