St Kyrel Trust celebrated the feast of Epiphany this year in a different way.
On January 25th at 7pm, St Kyrel Trust Choir, joined by choirs from the Armenian, Greek, Maronite, Roman Catholic and Syrian churches, gathered for a unique celebratory service at the Greek Cathedral of Agia Sophia, Moscow Road, London. The date was selected to coincide with the culmination of a national week of prayer for Christian Unity; the earnest desire of this service.
The choirs sang in the traditional tunes and language of their respective churches, and also participated in singing one piece of music together. Singing was followed by a passage from the gospel read in English.
The event was attended by many people from the above denominations. Also present were several guests and dignitaries that included: Archbishop Gregorios of Theatera (Greek Orthodox Church), Bishop Angaelos (Coptic Orthodox Church), Metropolitan Toma (Syrian Orthodox Church), Bishop Vahan (Armenian Orthodox Church) and the Cypriot High Commissioner.
The maestro of the event was Prof. Michael Henein, previous Chairman of St Kyrel Trust.
Furthermore, parts of the event were aired on the Hellenic TV.
