For the Swedish, the Feast of Saint Lucia signals the onset of Christmas and is the highlight of the Advent season. Folklore suggests that the roots of Lucia history begin in Syracuse, Italy, around 300 A.D. when an innocent, young girl was coveted by a local Nobleman. When she refused his advances, he had her condemned as a Christian and attempted to have her burned. Legend has it that she emerged unharmed by the flames.

2007 provided the choir Stockholm Singers and its conductor Bo Aurehl with an opportunity to celebrate Lucia in the great hall of the Nordiska muséet in Stockholm. The atmosphere was magical, the audience was captivated and a repeat the following year was a forgone conclusion.

This recording featuring soloist Mezzosoprano Susann Végh allows us to recapture these enchanted moments.
