This piece was commissioned by Borge Brass Band with support from Borge Sparebank in 1997. They suggested some folk tunes from Lofoten for the composer, from which he chose two of them. The two folk songs are “Herre Gud, dit dyre navn og ære” and “Jesus, your deep wonder and your painful death”.
Fra Borge is a part of the suite “Viking Spirit” together with the movements “Fra Ryfylke (Tunes from Ryfylke)” and “Norwegian Dance”.
This Concert Band version of the suite was written for the Royal Norwegian Navy Band and their conductor Nigel Boddice.
