Carols and Swedish Lucia songs by candlelight in York Minster

December 2019

Our Sankta Lucia candlelit service, with carols and traditional songs in Swedish, took place in York Minster on Friday 6 December 2019 . As in previous years, the collection was shared between the Minster and the CoScan Trust Fund, which annually awards cash grants to young British people with well-motivated grounds for travelling to the Nordic countries.

Organized for the seventh time by the York Anglo-Scandinavian Society (YASS) in partnership with York Minster, this year the choir from Sweden was Chorus Pictor and friends.

The Choir will also be in the church of St Wilfrid, Harrogate, on 7 December singing the Sankta Lucia concert at 6:00 pm as part of St Wilfrid’s Christmas Fayre.
