The annual Christmas concert and prayer service of the Cathedral Choir presents choral works for the season at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8 at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul.
The program will include “Seek Him that Maketh the Seven Stars” (Jonathan Dove), the riveting “In Splendoribus Sanctorum” (James Macmillan), Sir Christemas (William Mathias), the Advent Responsory (Richard Marlow) and holiday favorites for all to join in singing.
A small chamber ensemble consisting of full brass, string quartet, organ and timpani will accompany the performance.
Come and pause for an afternoon of reflection and prayer as the community waits in anticipation of Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
The cathedral is located at 18th Street and Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia.
