Many people have a special carol that gives them “that Christmas feeling every time,” but composer Oja Gjeilo took it to another level by arranging his favorite carols for his most recent project “Winter Songs.”

“I wanted to do something new with them that hasn’t necessarily been done before,” Gjeilo says. He combined his inspiration to compose for chorus with his experiences growing up in Norway to help put the project in motion.

Listen to the full interview between Oja Gjeilo and Of Note’s Katy Henriksen with the streaming link above.
