Mette-Marit producing CD: Sorgen & Gleden

Kongehuset reports that Mette-Marit has accepted an invitation from Kirkelig Kulturverksted, and will be participating both as an editor for a new CD with hymns/psalms, where she'll be choosing both the psalms and the artists involved, and be present as a co-producer during the recording. The CD will be recorded in January.

The proceeds from the sale of the CD will go to Kirkens Bymisjon (Church City Mission)

Se & Hør reports that the collection will be songs that have been important to Mette-Marit, and that artists like Maria Solheim, Kari Bremnes, Solveig Slettahjul and Susanne Sundfø are some of the ones that will be participating in the project.

Given that Mette-Marit reportedly was in the audience at Norwegian Idol last time, it might be interesting to see who the final artists will be

Someone like Maria Solheim who sang at Ingrid Alexandra's christening is definitely not a surprise.

If these CD will have Hymns and Psalms in them, and the money will go to the profit of a Church it's O.K.

I'm happy that all these old religious songs are being compiled.

Vanesa.

That is so neat. She will probably have a blast. She seems like she would be so much fun.

It does seem like music, specifically religious music is an interest of Mette-Marit's. One of her patronages is the Oslo International Church Music Festival.

This sounds like a very interesting project for a princess to be involved with. I hope she has fun doing it and that lots of benefit comes from the cd.

CP Mette-Marit has been co-producer on a cd with psalms and hymns. As far as I can gather she has chosen some of her favourite hymns, and hymns that means something to her. She comments upon some of them in the article. Norweigan artists perform the hymns. The cd will be released (in Norway) 28/2-08.

I like her explanation on why she's chosen some of the psalms - for example "Jeg er i Herrens hender" to calm her down when she is flying,

She also mentions that she ties a lot of her identity into being a mother.

The VG article focus on how she talks about the superficiality being a big part of our society, and correspondingly, the commenters in that particular forum claim that someone who appears in evening dresses from Paris shouldn't speak too loud about superficiality. [making it sound like she does it every day] Of course, the overall level of posting there is not all that high, or deep, and a joke in certain circles.

The release "party" for the CD: - Platen ble mer personlig enn jeg hadde forestilt meg - VG Nett

Mette-Marit: The CD became more personal than I had imagined in the beginning.

Haakon, Marius, Märtha Louise, and other members of Mette-Marit's family were present at teh release party, where the songs were sung, and Mette-Marit presented them.

She seems very proud and happy. I love the picture Her_Majesty posted of her and Haakon hugging Marius. I'm also glad to see her just looking very healthy.

The article mentions that MM has stopped wearing her wedding ring. It was first noticed before Christmas, and she is still not wearing it. One speculation as to why is that she is pregnant, as swollen hands may go together with pregnancy, and it would explain the lack of wedding ring. They also point out the cancellations.

(I really prefer waiting for announcements from the palace, but with the article and the loose white top, I feel like I see a bump under there.)
