Dear Friends! The Mikael Agricola Choir and the Agricola Reconstruction Club have prepared for you a short online tour!
Each of the 18 “tour guides” speak exactly 3 sentences. Some of them spoke them by phone as we recorded and others sent them as voice recorder audios. Like mosaic pieces, they put together a text. It is illustrated mostly by photos taken by Yelena Zhalnina and Darya Shkurlyatyeva during a trip on the King’s Road in Finland to the homeland of Mikael Agricola (1510-1557).
Online project coordinator Yelena Zhukova from Vyborg and honorary Agricolans Yelena Baranova from Rzhev and Tatyana Ryumina from St. Petersburg play a phrase from a hymn by Agricola on flutes. The voice of Agricola himself is our choir member Vladimir Yanyonok reading the beginning of a Latin manuscript.
The texts are read by Darya Shkurlyatyeva, Daniil Andreyev, Yelena Polevina, Nadezhda Urban, Marina Shkurlyatyeva, Svetlana Shangaryova, Elina Osipova, Rosalia Musina, Larisa Lezova, Galina Hüppinen, Marina Kuvshinova, Zinaida Sokolova, Rev. Dmitri Rozet, Irina Mazanka, Lilia Ankudinova, Natalia Kolesnikova, Olga Kutyavina, and Vladimir Yanyonok.
