The Monastic Choir of St Elisabeth Convent will perform in Berlin on September 21 during the opening ceremony of Heart 2 Heart Festival organised by St Elisabeth Convent. After that, the Choir will travel to the United Kingdom where it will have concerts on September 22 – 28.
The sisters will sing not only during concerts but also during worship in several Orthodox parishes in London. A concert in Canterbury will mark the end of their tour.
All concerts of the Monastic Choir of St Elisabeth Convent will consist of two parts: worship chants and spiritual songs (canticles).
Some of the chants included in the programme are taken from the repertoire of the Festive Choir of St Elisabeth Convent conducted by Nun Juliania (Denisova). Nun Juliania adapted these chants for the Monastic Choir.
Part One. Worship Chants
Part Two. Spiritual Songs and Canticles
As we are getting ready for the Easter liturgy, we invite you to view our choir practice on Saturday morning. Remember to book your calendar.
