On Friday the 16th of December the Mosaic Choir brought the spirit of Christmas to North London with a beautifully executed and uplifting performance of traditional Christmas songs and Carols from Greece, Russia, Romania, Serbia and other places around the world, spreading the joy of Christmas. Voices were wonderfully balanced and blended, often accompanied by folksy recorder pieces masterfully played by Rebecca Vucetic. Story teller, Anna Conomos, gave helpful introductions telling the story of the song and the meaning behind the words.
The choir performed a full range of music from peaceful hymns to foot tapping Balkan carols, rounded off with a stunning encore of Gaudete, sung with wonderful dynamics from sotto voce to a rousing final chorus. The choir were warmly received with a standing ovation and loud applause – it really added a bit of warmth to a cold winter night.
They were hosted by the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Saint Andrew, and the concert was attended by Bishop Chrysostom of Kyanea and introduced by Priest Kristian Akselburg – who warmly thanked the choir. At the end a charity collection was held – the proceeds to be shared between charities supported by the Fellowship and also the Cathedral’s Christmas almsgiving.
Here is a brief taste of the concert through some amateur videos.
Some beautiful photos were taken by the photographer Alexios Gennaris and can be seen on our Facebook Page
Come to a Carol Concert with a difference! Experience a concert with a true international flavour which will have some familiar favourites but also a real international and folk feel, with carols from Romania, Greece, Ukraine, France and other countries, too.
The Mosaic Choir was formed under the umbrella of the Fellowship of Saint John the Baptist and is made up of Orthodox people from a variety of backgrounds: cradle Orthodox and converts, and from countries all over the world!
We also sing liturgical Christmas music from different traditions, during what will be a very relaxed evening.
If you’re in London and want a unique musical experience for Christmas come along and tell your friends!
Sunday 13 December, 7:30pm, Free entry with retiring collection
