A magical Scandinavian tradition that takes place the week before December 13th, when the 400-year old tradition of the ‘queen of light’, St. Lucia is celebrated with church concerts and processions. On St. Lucia’s day sees thousands of young girls (and boys) emerge from the darkness of a Swedish winters day and gently silence the crowds with a procession of light. For a truly enchanting experience our beautiful choir performed in the majestic Asylum chapel lit up with lights, and the Lucia wearing the traditional crown of candles. Our audience enjoyed spiced food, Swedish Hot dogs mulled wine, gingerbread and got into the Christmas spirit with us before the darkest night of the year (in Sweden that is) was taking place.
