Egil Hovland is one of Norway's most productive and popular contemporary composers. He has written symphonic works, concerti for various instruments, chamber music, choral works, music for children and a great number of sacred works of varying dimensions, including a church opera, church ballets and music to modern biblical plays. Since 1949 he has held the post of organist and choir-master at the church of Glemmen in the city of Fredrikstad. Mr. Hovland has taken a very active part in the updating of the liturgical books of the Church of Norway and has contributed to several hymnals, choral works and organ accompaniments used by that Church and abroad. He has won several significant musical awards and in 1983 was made a Knight of the Royal Order of Saint Olav in recognition of his services to Norwegian music both as composer and performer.
