Choral Evensong for Ukraine (on the anniversary of the outbreak of war in Ukraine)
Fri 24 February, 2023 at 5:30 pm until 6:15 pm
On Friday 24th February we will be marking the first anniversary of the war in Ukraine with a special Choral Evensong at 5.30pm, sung by our boys choir and lay clerks. The short traditional service will be a chance to reflect and be still in the beauty of the Abbey, to listen to beautiful music including John Rutter’s Prayer for Ukraine, to hear readings in both English and Ukrainian, and to pray for Ukraine. Everyone is welcome and entry is free.
At 7pm there will be a ‘Concert of Warmth and Light’, an extraordinary, moving musical event organised in aid of Oleksandriya, a Ukrainian city that the people of Bath are supporting by sending emergency generators for hospitals and schools. The concert features the Ukrainian singer Nicole Medin, and includes Voices for Life childrens choir as well as other local choirs.
