Jon collaborating with norwegian 'star'


Jon will be arranging some of the songs for an upcoming album with norwegian pop singer Maria Arredondo. He is workning with The Trondheim Soloists, like he has done before and on his latest solo albums.

Arredondo is kind of a ... pop idol for (some) young girls.. Strange choice from Lord..

If you understand norwegian, or just want to see a picture, see:

Sounds spooky. Could you make a general translation of the article?

Maria Arredono (20) is in the studio and makes together with Jon Lord and 16 Trondheim soloists a classical Christmas album.

It is exciting and she feels like she'd be naked singing in nordish language.

Producer: Bjørn Nessjø

Re: Jon collaborating with norwegian 'star'


Well, I dont think the album is 'classical', like in classical music. It's more a 'classic christmas album' like every self restecting commercial pop artitist makes... But some classical ingrediences are there..

Lord says there is no hope for a Purple reunion.

– That chapter is over.

– I've worked with TTS before It's achallenge to arrange these three, beautiful songs. I don't know them from Britan, and maybe I'll do it differently than somebody who grew up with them.

– I released my first album 17 years before Maria was born. Lord says and adds that she has a good voice and good register...

Yes, Eiric I understood an album with old Chrismas (classical Christmas-album) songs on it and then I lost interest.

It's something what nearly everybody does emoticon

Re: Jon collaborating with norwegian 'star'


Is Lord's task "only" (no harm, Jon) to make arrangements to three songs?

Re: Jon collaborating with norwegian 'star'


The album is called "My Christmas" ("Min Jul" in Norwegian) and is set to premiere on 28th November 2005.

The tracklist:

01: Himmel på jord
02: Glade jul
03: Sonjas sang til julestjernen
04: Jeg er så glad hver julekveld
05: Klagesang
06: Deilig er jorden
07: Det lyser i stille grender
08: Ledet av en stjerne
09: Det kimer nå til julefest
10: En stjerne skinner i natt
11: Det heve ei rose sprungen
12: When You Wish Upon A Star
13: Nå tennes tusen julelys

Don't know which songs were arranged by Lord and whether he has produced the album too - some sources say he has also took over the role of a producer. Go to cdon.com to see the cover of the album.
