The concerts of the St Elisabeth Convent Monastic Choir introduce the tradition of Russian Orthodox religious chanting, which emerged from the unity of monastic life, worship and serving the fellow neighbour.
The programme of each concert is presented in two sections. The first part consists of church hymns based on ancient chants, celebrated for their refined and exalted nature. The second part follows up with well-known and popular church songs and canticles, the beauty and wisdom of which lies in their simplicity and uniqueness.
The duration of each concert is 45 minutes.
