His Royal Highness Prince Henrik has passed away
Thus, Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir has lost it’s patron for 46 years. Prince Henrik took over the protectorate of the choir after King Frederik IX, and through all years, Prince Henrik has warmly and enthusiastically been a great support for the work of Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir both at home and abroad.
In the company of HM Queen or alone, the Prince has been a beloved guest at the choir’s concerts, and his delight in the performance of the choir has proven himself at countless royal events and special concerts, most recently in the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.
All of this we are remembering with great gratitude. And we will dedicate the choir’s forthcoming concert with Mozart’s Requiem in Copenhagen Cathedral on March 23, to the memory of our protector.
