As in previous years it is organised by the York Anglo-Scandinavian Society (YASS) in collaboration with the Dean & Chapter of York Minster.

London Nordic Choir (LNC) conducted by Carina Einarson, will be the choir this year. LNC is an independent choir, based in Marylebone, and founded by Director of Music Carina Einarson with the aim to promote the unique sound of traditional Nordic choral works.


When: Sunday 17 December 2017 @ 15.00 and 18.00

Children from the Saturday School will form the Lucia Procession. The two advent services will include Christmas carols and bible verses in Danish and English.
