My land is a Song. Always and today, it is full of the will to live! Because life always wins over death. We will win together with you!
– Nataliia Polovynka

A prayer of peace. A concert of ancient spiritual and traditional songs of Ukraine. On Thursday 23 August the Word and Voice Theatre Centre from Lviv, Ukraine, led by renowned singer, actress and pedagogue Nataliia Polovynka, will be performing together with Solomiia Kyrylova and Mariia Kmit, and will share a selection of beautiful ancient spiritual songs – Irmos.

Irmos is a liturgical genre of ancient Ukrainian sacred music, which has gradually left the church rite over the last three centuries. It can be found only in old prints of archives and in libraries of old monasteries. During this special evening spiritual songs will be celebrated in the joy of meeting and sharing between these special performers and the audience.
