Ellingboe is the editor of two books of songs by the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg. These have been widely hailed as significant additions to the understanding of Grieg and his music. For his efforts on behalf of Norwegian music, he was awarded the Medal of Saint Olav ("Sankt Olavs Medaljen") by His Majesty King Harald V of Norway.
