We’re thrilled to be performing as part of the Holy Week Festival at St John’s Smith Square. This programme explores the rich heritage of music from the Scandinavian and Celtic traditions. Interlinked by their shared encounters throughout history—peaceful and otherwise—traces of contact linger in their languages, music, and decorative arts, yet they retain their own spiritual and musical sensibilities, which we present through three core themes: love, hope, and longing.
