  3. Hello, everyone.
    Today, I went to the concert of you. (Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi Prefecture)
    I was impressed by your singing voice.
    Thank you.
    I pray the future will bring you more success.

  4. Dear Guys,
    I found you in youtube, while I was searching for the song “Limu Limu Lima”, which my 5 year old daughter Maya learned in her childrens-choir and I didnt know this song.
    When I was listen your version with violine and guitar I a had difficultues not to shed tears, because it was so so hearttouching!
    Now I often listen this song on youtube and I am sad, that I didnt found a CD or Mp3 to buy…

    Today I found you singing the motives from the film “Ronja rövardotter” and I was so happy, I like it so much and I just these days I read the gerat book for my daughter every evening…

    I pray, that one day I can hear you live anywhere in Germany… And if you make a CD with that songs, please tell me! I will buy!

    Till then thankyou for the great music and the nice moments you gave me.
    All the best wishes for you all,

    Ulrike & Maya Diestel

  5. Bonjour,
    Je vous ai apprécié dans l’église Sainte Croix de Saint Lô.
    J’ai adoré l’atelier du vendredi matin avec Sofia.
    Je regarde tout ce que je peux sur You Tube vous concernant.
    Une question : pouvez-vous me faire parvenir la partition de “Limu, Limu, Lima” car j’ai très envie de la chanter avec mon ensemble vocal.
    Je paierais les frais.
    Merci d’avance.
    Marc

    • Bonjour Marc,

      Merci pour les compliments, nous sommes heureux que vous avez apprécié notre concert et l’atelier de Sofia! Je vais transmettre votre demande pour le la partition de “Limu Limu lima” à Sofia, qui l’a écrit.

      Cordialement,
      Martin

  6. Bonjour,
    Je serais ravi de recevoir la partition de “Limu, Limu, Lima”.
    Peut-être pouvez-vous me la transmettre par mail.
    Merci d’avance
    Marc
    PS : nous vous avons vu et entendu à Saint Lô le jeudi soir dans l’église Sainte Croix et ensuite nous avons participé à l’atelier du vendredi matin avec Sofia.

  7. Hej på Er !
    Jag hörde Er i Husie Kyrka 3 september. Ni har ju härliga röster och det är en fröjd att höra Er sjunga.
    Jag sjunger själv i fyra körer, Lyrans Manskör, TBV-kören i Malmö, Lomma Kyrkokör samt en pansionärskör i Husie som heter Happy Days.
    Det är ju det roligaste som finns att sjunga i kör tycker jag.
    Den 24 september har jag den äran att ha Sofia som körledare i Hyllie församlingshem.
    Det skall bli kul. Jag var där förra året också.
    Hon är toppen tycker jag.

  8. Dear Singers,
    We were present in the Church in Avignon last week. We were really moved by your beautiful music. Home again we still cannot forget it. You really brought soul into the music.

  9. Måste jag flytta till Lund för att få tillfälle att lyssna till er så ofta jag önskar? Har önskat er flera gånger i P2-radions olika program, men inte blivit hörsammad. Skivorna i all ära, men live är ni annu bättre. Var köper jag den senaste skivan?
    hälsningar Margareta

  10. My greetings for Svanholm Singers. I have been looking for any contacto with you and I found this website. I think that you a great choir. Sorry for my english. It’s not very good. I prefer to write in Spanish. Mi nombre es Andy A. Díaz y soy miembro del Coro Voces Oscuras-UCV de Venezuela. Creo que ustedes conforman una agrupación de alto nivel. Me encantó su actuación en Torrevieja, en especial las dos polifonias que llevaron para cantar. Me gustaria saber si es posible intercambiar partituras. Yo le di a uno de los chicos de Svalhom Singers una canción venezolana llamada: ” DESPERTAR” de Antonio Estévez para tres voces masculinas. No se si la vieron. Es una cancion que describe la belleza de nuestros llanos en un hermoso poema. Pienso que les quedará muy bien. También les entregué una tarjeta para contactarnos con una foto de las Voces Oscuras de Venezuela. Espero que a través de esta vía estemos en contacto. En Venezuela siempre se realizan Festivales de Coros y pienso que sería buena idea invitarlos. Así que estamos en contacto.

    Un abrazo desde Venezuela y muchos éxitos!

    P.D.: Extiendan mis felicitaciones a su directora Sofia. a Hug!

    • Gracias Andy por su entusiasmo sobre nuestro canto. Tambien nos gusto su coro en Torrevieja. En cuanto a intercambiar partituras no veo problema alguna (aparte de la ley…:-) ). Que me escribas cuales piezas q les interesa y lo arreglamos via correo electronico y partituras de PDF.
      Siempre nos gusta conocer nuevos paises viajando con el coro, y Venezuela si es un pais muy hermoso para conocer. Creo que las tarjetas de informacion de contacto se perdio, disculpe, y no se lo de la “DESPERTAR”.
      Ojala por email podamos mantener mejor contacto.
      Escribame por johan.sternby@svanholmsingers.nu para empezar y ya veremos adonde llegar.

      Disculpa mi mal español

  12. Hi, The same as Ron, our support from Madrid (Spain) to continue making music on that way, we never expect ( and sure nobody ) that a swedish choir could sing habananeras with that emotion. Really Really good. Congratulations for all te work done. We will keep watching ur future events to enjoy it.

    Lots of hugs from Spain.

  13. Hello from Novo Concertante Manila

    Hello Dear Friends, We would like to congratulate you for a very impressive performance in Torrevieja. We hope to meet you again someday and have a chance of singing together. With best regards, Ron

  14. la banda de los bandidos….. soy de las voces oscuras de la universidad de venezuela y a su vez fuimos compañeros del certamen de hahaneras en Torre Vieja.. “mis felicitacines para todos ustedes” a nuestro parecer musical fueron los mejores en polifonia pro hay veces que las injusticias estan presentes. sigan ese trabajo que lograron en el certamen porque su publuico merece que los vean.

    hay algo que si me gustaria tener para realizar un arrecglo para voces blancas. es la partitura de LA BANDA DE LOS BANDIDOS. ME PARECE ALGO SIN PRECEDENTE ALGUNO.

    mis felicitaciones a todos sus integrantes y a su profesora especialmente. son los mejores…

    • Hola Yonathan

      Gracias por sus felicitaciones y felicidades para todos Uds. al primer premio! Sus canciones folclóricos nos encantaron burda. Les deseamos lo mejor y esperamos que nos vayamos a ver por ahí, sea en Suecia o Venezuela.
      Vamos a ver si te podemos ayudar en conseguir la partitura de “la banda de los bandidos”.

    • Hej och tack för ditt inlägg i gästboken! Hoppas att du tyckte om konserten i Benicássim, vi hade en härlig upplevelse på konserten i klosterkyrkan. Vad gäller smakprov kommer det snart att komma upp på hemsidan, som fortfarande är i slutfasen av sin uppbyggnad (du hittade hit lite innan allt var klart!).

      Bästa hälsningar,
      Martin

    • Hej Göran,

      Vad roligt att du uppskattar inspelningen! Det är körens dirigent Sofia Söderberg Eberhard som sjunger sopransolot i Mariae Wiegenlied, på skivan december. Se också presentationerna av körens övriga skivor och håll utkik efter nästa, som planeras utkomma i oktober.

  16. Mässa

    Det skulle vara underbart att få höra er Hodie Christus Natus Est i Visby domkyrka under en medeltida mässa i vecka 32! Gärna en hel konsert med er medeltida repertoire.

    Hello dear Sofia, Recalling your bright person I want to wish you a Merry Christmas, praying God that the Light of His Word will always give you the real Peace. With my best hugs and kisses to you, bye. Giuliano- Gorizia- Italy

  18. radiokonsert

    Har aldrig hört så vackra tenorröster.Hur är det möjligt. Underbar kon sert torsdagen 18 dec 2008

  19. Koncert Garnisions kirken

    Kære kor og dirigent – det var en uforglemmelig aften i går den 20.7.2008 – aldrig har jeg hørt så dygtigt et kor og så godt samarbejde mellem alle. Tusind tak hilsen fra Birgit

  20. Welcome Sofia

    Hello Sofia I’m very happy that you’are returned: my great desire to revise you has been fulfilled so I hope to meet you as sson as possible. “It is through the idealism of youth that man catches sight of truth, and in that idealism he possesses a wealth which he must never exchange for anything else.”Albert Schweitezer. Singing is the spirituality of idealism, an expression of our inner dimension. In these times is difficult to be idealists, even singing is not difficult when you have more strength and courage to live life fully. Sofia you are a singer teacher, your is a position of strength and dynamism of life in one of its highest expressions: a part of the fluid of the LIFE of all the umanity. You’re a very wonderful woman with the charme of the simple girl. Hoping that this is for you a period of professional and human growth I wish you a pleasant stay in Gorizia that every year you learn to know better. Bye

  21. Singing Apes

    I saw you perform last year in competition in Tallinn. Fantastic work! The piece by Jan Sandstrom–The Singing Apes of Khao Yai–who publishes that? I would love to get my hands on a copy of the music. Thank you!

  22. 8 March 2008-IWD-

    Hello dear Sofia, My best wishes for you in this day in which in all the world it remembers the establishment of the day that commemorates the long, hard and tiring work done by women to obtain recognition of their equal rights and dignity with the men which in practical means have the same job opportunities. Perhaps without this commitment of women and men of good will who have incurred, would probably not think of you, in your current job of director of Choirs loved and appreciated in Sweden and other Countries. I hope that one day you Sofia will be composing music and lyrics of a new song in which all women have a unique sentiment of good for herselves and men without hate and passion for social struggle. I ideally send a bouquet of yellow mimosas as a sign of appreciation and gratitude for your presence in my City, Gorizia, and for the meeting, although short, I was able to have with you. Hoping to see you again bye and kisses. A blond man.

  24. Midnattsmässa i Lomma kyrka

    Ett stort och varmt tack för årets julklapp! Julnattens framträdande var något av det bästa vi någonsin upplevt i musikväg. Vi ser fram emot repris julen 2008. Familjen Carlberg, Lomma

  25. Julkonserten

    Helt fantastiskt! Vilken dynamik! Vilken dynamit! Vilket tonomfång och shit vad mäktiga små sekundrar 🙂 Alla vi som var där i afton var helt lyriska efteråt! Att sitta där i mitten precis när det händer och njuta till efterklangen i Domkyrkan! Majestätiskt! Världsklass! Fem stjärnor till nuet. Att “Jul, jul, strålande jul” är min favvojullåt gör ju inte saken sämre heller 🙂

  26. Cornwall International Male Voice Festiv

    Tack för en helt fantastisk konsert i Näs Ladugård. Allra mest gillade jag styckena av den baltiske kompositören. Ni annonserade hans besök i Lund senare i höst. Är det den konserten som kommer att hållas i Universitetsaulan i oktober? Varmt tack sänder Margareta med vänner som också var där

  38. Amazing Performances

    I competed in Gorizia with The University of Akron choirs and may I just say that it was an honor to have been beaten by you 🙂 I enjoyed your performances greatly and the first song you sang in the “Folk” category is STILL STUCK IN MY HEAD!! It was a true honor to compete with a group as impressive as yours!

    At first I can only say the same like Anna Molnár. I am fascinated by the high quality and the magnificent homogeneity of your singing. It’s great! You were really the best in this competition. And here’s my request. I’m looking for the notes of Björn Isfält already for a long time. You sang this music in Gorizia at sunday. Can you send me the notes or tell me, how can I get them? Thank you very much.

  45. Greetings

    I’m very happy to meet after many years my friend Eva Bohlin! Send me a message. We always can organize a partnership with an italian choir in Bassano del Grappa. See you soon. Yours faithfully Filiberto Zanella

  46. Schubert

    In your webpage titled ‘Romance’ you state that your voyage ends with Schubert in Germany. Which Schubert? Or do you mean Johann Sebastian Schubert in Austria? Thanks, anyway, for some splendid singing in your three releases. I, too, would sing like an angel with a conductor like yours! With kind regards, Ole Baekgaard

  47. Svanholm

    Hej Sofia och alla sångare, Har skaffat en ny dator och lyckas nu komma in på er hemsida. Proffsig, liksom också ert framtädande i Helsingborg. Två saker: 1. Jag heter sedan 1/1 2004 Eva Svanholm Bohlin 2. Set Svanholm föddes 2 september 1904 och skulle alltså fyllt 100 i år om han levat. Något att markera? Ni och numera ockå jag hjälper ju till att hålla hans namn levande. Många kramar till alla

  48. Olá de Belo Horizonte / Brasil

    Através do Johan, meu inesquecível “amigo” negão sueco, pude conhecer um pouco do trabalho de vocês. Eu também canto em um coro que se chama Madrigale e espero que um dia possamos fazer um intercâmbio por este universo maravilhoso que é a música. Felicidades!!! Joana Belo Horizonte / Brasil.

  49. U.S. tour?

    I just learned of your second CD, “Romance,” which I hope to acquire soon. I’ve listened to and enjoyed enormously the first CD almost every week during the past year or so! When do you plan to tour in the United States?

  50. dates of concerts

    Hi! I’m a fan and I’d like to be aware of your dates of concerts for this summer in Japan: I’ll be there and I’d be so happy to see you! Kisses

  51. Konsert

    Synd att jag missade er snokonsert men det gick tyvarr inte att boka om min afrikaresa. Jag har hort att det var en valdigt bra konsert…. Jag har med svanholmskivan hit och afrikanerna gillar den.

  52. Vilket underbart sound!

    Traumlicht låter underbart drömskt, t o m bättre än OD-kören. Var hittar man såna underbara tenorer och låga basar?! kommunala musikskoleelever månne? Keep up the good work, det kan bara bli bättre…

  53. Congratulations!

    I hope that your new album is as good as previous. I’m about to order it. It’s a pleasure listening to your music.

  54. skivan!

    Kära sångare, blir stolt över vårt arbete med Romance nu när jag äntligen fått den överlämnad av en vänlig Emil J härom sist. Mitt tenorpressande i svenska-kyrkans kör i Paris blev genast än mer oinspirerat. Jag läser om era planer och längtar.. hagegården låter inte illa! Lycka till så syns vi till nästa termin! Johannes

  55. F-n va gött!!!

    Lite ryggdunk åt alla SvS:are. En riktigt, RIKTIGT go skiva. Kalle Bjurström borde få medalj för sin solosång liksom Stefan. Skulle också vilja ge en stor eloge till Olof, Sofia, Lasson och alla andra som jobbat hårt för att få skivan färdig. Jag är så stolt över att få vara en del i denna eminenta kör.

  56. What’s up?

    I guess that you feel allright after your return from my country. I am proud of you,you diserve for every prize. I hope we will meet each other again (someday). If you get my e-mail adresse please write to me. Best wishes.
