When Angels sang in Norwich - Holy Myrrhbearers Women’s Choir - 11/16/08

On this Sunday afternoon, November 16th, in a sparsely attended hall, heavenly sounds could be heard on Canterbury Turnpike in Norwich.  It was simple to close ones eyes, listen, and be filled with sounds one might think only angels could make.  The music was astounding and touched the soul.  This was the concert given by the “Holy Myrrhbearers Women’s Choir” from Blauvelt, N.Y. in the hall at Holy New Martyr’s Russian Orthodox Church.  The program featured a wide range of Russian Liturgical Music and brought tears to the eyes of more than one member of the audience.  These 18 women, under the direction of Eugenia Temidis, have the power to take their listener through sound to sublime places.


This was a gem of a concert.  We hope this gifted choir will have the opportunity to return to Norwich and we hope more of Norwich will have the opportunity to experience their heavenly voices.
