This recital is an excellent opportunity to hear the Orfeó choir performing in the heart of the city

The Orfeó Català choir sings Christmas carols in Plaça del Rei

The concert will take place on Wednesday 4 January and will feature traditional Catalan songs like 'Fum, fum, fum' and 'El noi de la mare'

The Orfeó Català, a choral society founded in 1891 by Lluís Millet and Amadeu Vives, is currently celebrating its 125th anniversary with a number of special acts and concerts. But that does nothing to prevent them from their customary seasonal performances such as this recital of Christmas carols, which has been a Christmas staple at Barcelona’s Plaça del Rei for the last six years. This a cappella performance see the participation of a number of the organisation’s children’s and youth choirs, who will be conducted by Pablo Larraz. This free recital will begin at 7.30pm on Wednesday 4 January.  

Going by the repertoire of previous years, the public can expect to hear traditional Catalan carols like Fum, fum, fum, Joia en el món, El Noi de la Mare, El desembre congelat, Les dotze van tocant, Allà sota una penya and Escolteu, els àngels canten. The choir will finish their performance with El cant de la Senyera, the anthem of the Orfeó Català, which is based on a poem by Joan Maragall, set to music by Lluís Millet.

This performance is organised by Barcelona City Council and is part of their schedule of Christmas celebrations
