Schola Cantorum In Paradisum

In Paradisum is the title of this year‘s annual All Saints concert by Schola Cantorum Chamber Choir in Hallgrím‘s Church. The title comes from one of the texts of the Requiem mass.

In the concert, the choir will perform a diverse collection of religious compositions and arrangements by Icelandic and foreign composers alike, mostly from recent years. Schola Cantorum continues on the path laid out with the publication of the Meditatio album, which caught the attention of music lovers in Iceland and abroad for its challenging repertoire and refined performance. All the works will be performed a cappella – they are musically demanding but at the same time accessible, introspective and inspiring for meditation and the memory of departed souls.

Schola Cantorum‘s conductor is Hörður Áskelsson.

This will be a poignant and uplifting music moment by one of Iceland‘s most prominent choirs in the unique acoustics of Hallgrím‘s church.

Tickets at and in the Hallgrím’s church foyer on concert day. Ticket price ISK 4.500.
