Music lovers will have a chance to relive the beautiful hymns sung at the Mass celebrated by Pope Francis Sept. 27 on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway – plus some hymns that were listed on the program but never sung – at a concert by the Papal Choir Monday, Oct. 19 at 7:30 p.m. in the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul in Philadelphia.
As at the papal Mass, David Kimock will conduct the choir – accompanied again on organ by Sandor Kadar – consisting of the archdiocesan and cathedral choirs, high school choir, children’s choir and hundreds of members from archdiocesan parish choirs.
Titled “A Celebration in Song: Giving Thanks, Reliving the Memories,” the concert is free and parking is free in the cathedral lot.
For more information call the archdiocesan Office for Divine Worship at 215-587-3696.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
