The Orfeó Català (Catalan Choral Society) in the Plaça del Rei

On the 3rd of January the choir will present a repertoire consisting principally of Christmas carols

On the third of January the Orfeó Català will be offering a free concert of Christmas carols for all audiences in the Plaça del Rei, Barcelona. The choir director, Josep Vila y Casañas, will present a programme which will include traditional pieces such as “Fum Fum Fum”, “Adeste Fideles”, “Joy to the World”, “O Bethlehem”, “Angels we have heard on high”, “Christmas Lullaby”, “Silent Night” and “Mary’s Boy Child”.

The concert will close with “El Cant de la Senyera” (Song of the Senyera (flag)), the Orfeó Català hymn with music by Lluís Millet based on a poem by Joan Maragall. “El Cant de la Senyera” was also the closing song in the St. Steven’s Day concert given by the choir on the 26th of December in the Palau de la Música.

This will be the fifth consecutive year that this concert has been given in this emblematic venue. The tradition of choral interpretations of Christmas carols in public places is well rooted in Anglo-Saxon culture and is becoming increasingly popular on these shores.
