By March the political situation had once again changed. Many of the most drastic steps taken to retard the development of Ukrainian culture were reconsidered, as little was now left to show off any development in Ukrainian culture during the period of Soviet rule. In another turn in national politics took place. Harassment and arrests commenced again. Almost all of the bandurists were arrested at one time or another and a significant number were convicted of political crimes and many were executed.
At the outset of WWII most Soviet musical collectives continued to function giving concerts for the Soviet armed forces. The Combined Bandurist Capella was again disbanded and the members mobilized to Bandurists Song German-Soviet front. A significant number of its members needlessly died in the first few days of the war on the front because of lack of military preparation and equipment. During the Nazi occupation of Ukraineattempts were made to re-establish a professional bandurist capella in Kiev by bandurist Bandurists Song.
The Bandurists Song of the Kiev Capella had all been immediately mobilized into the Red Army with the Nazi invasion; however, a number of bandurists who had survived had returned to Kiev and a group initially directed by the former concertmaster Hryhory Nazarenko was established and began rehearsing. In the spring of it applied to the Kiev City Council for permission to use Taras Shevchenko as its patron, which was granted.
In time, with his arrival the artistic directorship was transferred to Hryhory Kytasty. Initially, the capella serviced areas around Kiev and parts of Western Ukraine. In the capella made up of seventeen singer-bandurists left Kiev for a tour of Germany. On arrival it was interned as a group into a forced labor camp in Hamburg, Bandurists Song. After numerous representations, the group was released after five months' incarceration in order to be used by the Nazis as a morale booster, performing for the Ukrainian OST-Arbeiters slave-workers from the East in German work camps.
At the end of the war, the capella found itself in Regensberg. In order to strengthen the artistry of the capella, Volodymyr Bozhykan opera conductor trained in Polandwas invited to become co-conductor.
Bozhyk conscripted a number of trained singers and the capella was transformed from a bandurist cappella where all its members played the bandura into a bandurist chorus where only some performers played the bandura and others just sang. The chorus continued for a period of time to perform throughout Germany after the war for the many internees living in the displaced peoples D.
In the chorus emigrated to the United States, settling as a group in Detroit. Initially it toured North America attempting to retain a professional performing status; however, this became economically unviable without radically changing the repertoire and artistic direction of the group.
