Ensemble Arto Doxo is a London-based choir of musicians who perform at the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Most Holy Mother of God in Chiswick and at the Cathedral of the Dormition in Knightsbridge. They are devoted to Russian Orthodox repertoire and their programme draws together Russian sacred music from the 15th to 20th centuries. Their performance will explore the history of the development of Russian sacred music, to show how the musical component of the spiritual heritage developed. We will also hear a selection of Russian folk songs, showing how deep and diverse music was involved in everyday life.
