Abstract and Keywords

This chapter is an analysis of the music performed at the memorial ceremony following the 2011 massacre where national extremist Anders Breivik killed 77 people, most of them young delegates at a summer camp of the Labour Party. Following an introductory discussion of theory of music, emotion, and nationhood, the chapter analysis takes the reader deep into a moment of emotional nationalism, just one month after the attack, providing a detailed description of the repertoire, production, and the performances at the ceremony. Knudsen argues that the ceremony expressed desires to rebuild national community and tolerance.

Keywords: Norway, popular music, emotion, performance, ceremony, nationalism, Utøya massacre
