Sacred choir music has been a unifying thread in the activities of the Mogens Dahl Chamber Choir since they released their highly praised CD Sacred North in 2008. Out of the almost inexhaustible treasure trough of church music for this programme we have chosen a number of ethereal pieces, that all invite to immersion and let us feel a hint of the Great Mystery.
The concert takes place on All Saints’ Day, when we remember departed friends and relatives. The baroque architecture of Christians Kirke will be the beautiful setting for a concert where we look inward and let the strains take our souls towards heaven.
