Norway’s Stave Church

Last week we looked at Norway’s ride attraction, Maelstrom, so today we’ll continue the Norwegian tour with the Stave Church found right at the entrance to the pavilion.

This building is a replica of the Gol Stave Church located in Oslo and it houses an exhibition called “Vikings: Conquerors of the Seas”.

I’m not alone in saying that I could spend a good bit of time inside the Stave Church simply because of the choice of music. The relaxing piece of music that you hear when in this area is by a Norwegian saxophonist, Jan Garbarek, titled “Parce mihi Domine”, and is actually a Gregorian Chant composed in the early 1500s.  If you’d like to take a photo and video tour of the Norway pavilion, including Maelstrom and the film following the ride, you can do so by watching this YouTube video. (Listen up at around 0:52 into the video as the Stave Church music is played).
