Aksel was invited to sing at mass on Sunday July 19th in the Catholic St Olav's Cathedral in Oslo, by Cathedral organist and cantor Vegar Sandholt. Mr. Sandholt previously conducted Oslo Cathedral Boys' Choir, and has accompanied Aksel on several earlier occasions.
Following mass, Aksel and Mr. Sandholt decided to do a recording of some arias from Messiah. The videos were posted on Aksel's YouTube channel and Mr. Sandholt's Facebook page ten days ago, and the response was massive, with the videos together amassing more than four thousand views in just a couple of days! Please enjoy the YouTube videos, and if you read Norwegian, please have a look at the numerous favourable Facebook comments here and here.
