Bringing the best of Britain and Sweden together to inspire unity, hope and compassion.
Saturday 16th of May 2020 will see the World Premiere in London of ‘LUX MUNDI’, a brand new choral work by the internationally renowned Swedish composer Fredrik Sixten. The first performance in Sweden on Sunday the 5th of July will take place in the glorious setting of the Eric Ericson Hall, Skeppsholmskyrkan, Stockholm.
Amid an increasingly polarised world, Lux Mundi (Light of the world) offers a much-needed musical statement of hope for the future.
The piece by internationally renowned Swedish composer Fredrik Sixten sets out to spread compassion, build bridges and strengthen the deep cultural bonds between the UK and Sweden.
Commissioned by English Baroque Choir and London Nordic Choir, Lux Mundi is a breath-taking musical journey that takes you from darkness to light in three movements – ‘Faith’, ‘Hope’ & ‘Love’ – filled with delicious harmonies, soaring melodic lines and intricate rhythms.
Polyphony blends with folk music, Baroque fugues and that special Nordic wistful longing – all in a light, contemporary style full of exciting surprises and moments of serenity. Sixten has used the beautiful and evocative language of King James Bible, selecting English texts that are eternally poignant. The result is inspiring, fresh and brave.
