Margaret King received her early musical training from her mother, Marilyn King, in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. During this time Margaret acquired numerous local, provincial, and national awards in piano, flute, and composition. In 1994, Margaret graduated from the University of Lethbridge with a Bachelor of Music degree in piano performance. Edmonton became her home in 1995 where she currently teaches piano, flute, and theory and Grant MacEwan College / Alberta College Conservatory of Music. As a composer, Margaret has been commissioned by the Calgary Girls choir, Cantilon, as well as the Skirts-a-Fire festival in Edmonton.
Norwegian Trilogy - 4pt treble. This piece originated from the time where the Cantilon Chamber choir learned the three tunes from a trio of folk musicians totally by ear. King later arranged these songs into this short song cycle. Using some contemporary notations for the inflections authentic to the style, and fully Norwiegan text with IPA guide, this piece would fit perfectly on a program of multicultural music, or as a stand-alone on a concert of a more diverse nature.
