Three liturgical choirs will present the fourth annual “Sounds of the Season” Christmas concert on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 3 p.m. at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul, Philadelphia.
The Cathedral Choir, Archdiocesan Adult Choir and Archdiocesan Children’s Choir will perform works by several composers and include audience participation to sing well-known Christmas carols.
The concert’s repertoire includes: “Cradle Song,” Arnesen; “The Lamb,” Tavener; “The Holly and the Ivy,” arranged by Davies; “Magnificat,” Esenvalds; “I Wonder as I Wander,” Pilkington; “In Dulci Jubilo;” “Birthday carol,” Willcocks; “Hodie Sweelinck.”
Choir Director Charlene Angelini hopes to allow concert-goers of all denominations to listen, pray and experience community through music, and to have everyone leave the concert with a sense of joy and hope.
Tickets for the concert will be available at the door, and complimentary parking is available in the cathedral parking lot.
The Cathedral is located at 18th and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia.

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.
