About this Event

Bringing the best of Britain and Sweden together to inspire unity, hope and compassion - POSTPONED until further notice

Saturday 16th May 7.30pm (doors & bar open 6.45pm) St John's Hyde Park Church, 18 Hyde Park Crescent, London, W2 2QD

English Baroque Choir & London Nordic Choir under the leadership of Jeremy Jackman & Carina Einarson

Amid an increasingly polarised world, Lux Mundi (Light of the world) offers a much-needed musical statement of hope for the future.

This programme's centre piece by internationally renowned Swedish composer Fredrik Sixten sets out to spread compassion, build bridges and strengthen the deep cultural bonds between the UK and Sweden.

Commissioned by English Baroque Choir and London Nordic Choir, Lux Mundi is a breath-taking musical journey that takes you from darkness to light in three movements – ‘Faith’, ‘Hope’ & ‘Love’ – filled with delicious harmonies, soaring melodic lines and intricate rhythms.

Polyphony blends with folk music, Baroque fugues and that special Nordic wistful longing – all in a light, contemporary style full of exciting surprises and moments of serenity. Sixten has used the beautiful and evocative language of King James Bible, selecting English texts that are eternally poignant. The result is inspiring, fresh and brave.

To further showcase our common musical heritage, tonight's programme also features English and Nordic choral treasures by Purcell, Weelkes, Gjeilo, Peterson-Berger, Vaughan Williams, Arnesen, MacMillan, Alfvén and others.

- WELCOME!
