Sacred choral music with traditional chants and Latvian folk music, as well as songs of the magic of light coming into the darkness.
The new mini-festival in Basel: heart-warming vocal art in perfection with the best a cappella ensembles in Europe in the days between the years.
Latvian Voices, to be experienced for the first time in Switzerland and the Dreiland, create an intimate atmosphere with their varied Christmas program - fitting for the dark season and the longing for light. Their Christmas program reflects the many facets of the ensemble: sacred choral music and traditional songs, Latvian folk music consisting of pagan melodies for the winter solstice, as well as original compositions and arrangements of internationally known Christmas hits, mainly penned by artistic director Laura Jēkabsone. Sound magic in perfection from the north!
In a pre-concert (Set 1), the ensemble Rheinstimmen sings of the magic of light coming into the darkness in masterpieces of vocal music including Biebl, Grigalis, Himes, Hofmeyr, MacMillan & Whitacre.
