THOMANERCHOR, Leipzig, Germany – “Prayer for Ukraine” (“Gebet”) by Mykola Lyssenko, arr. by Andreas Schmidt

Thomanerchor Leipzig, choir conductor Andreas Reize and all the choir members are devastated by the illegal war waged by the Russian government against Ukraine. We strongly condemn all acts of war and violence. At this time, our solidarity and sympathy unquestionably extend to all those affected by the war in Ukraine. Our thoughts are first and foremost with our partner city of Kyiv, as well as with all Ukrainian cultural workers who are suffering from an attack by the Russian government. As a sign of solidarity, we will perform this prayer based on Mykola Lysenko’s Ukrainian anthem in the following choral concerts.
