Arranged by: Billund Kirke

A programme that illustrates how music like most other cultural expressions through the centuries has been enriched by the world outside Denmark.

The selected works are all by Danish composers inspired by texts or music from our neighbouring countries or by composers from some of the same countries who in various ways have a special connection to Denmark.
