The Norwegian Rikskonsertene ordered this music.

The Viking king Sverre Sigurdsson (1151 ľ 1202) was born and grew up on the Faeroe Islands, where he studied to be a priest. In 1177 he went to Norway, and the year after, he joined the rebels Birkebeinerne (the birchlegs) and soon became their leader. He demanded to be the rightful king of Norway. His enemy was king Magnus Erlingsson who was supported by the aristocracy and the church. In 1184 there was a big battle between the two rivals and their men. This battle, which took place by Fimreite in the Sognefjord is famous in the history of Norway. King Magnus was mortal wounded and fell in this battle, and Sverre now became the king of Norway. But he had many enemies among the nobles and the church, and they persuaded the pope of Rome (Pope Celestine III) to excommunicate him. King Sverre did not take the excommunication very seriously, and as it is written in the Norwegian national anthem: ôFra dets h°ye Sverre talte, talte Roma midt imotö. From the hills of the country spoke Sverre, he spoke out against Rome. Sverre was the reigning king of Norway until he died in 1202. Score and parts 20 pages. Duration is 4 min 48 sec.
