On Christmas Eve, the Notre-Dame choir will give a concert in the severely damaged Parisian cathedral for the first time. The concert will take place in strict compliance with the applicable health measures and will be broadcast on television, the archdiocese announced on Monday. The event will include 20 singers from the Notre-Dame adult choir, two soloists and an organ player.
After the fire, there were already small masses without an audience in the cathedral – for example at Easter. According to the Archdiocese, this is the first performance for the Notre-Dame choir after the fire. So far he had to switch to other churches in Paris. It is therefore a symbolic Christmas concert, it says in the message.
The traditional midnight mass at Christmas took place last year in a big top in the Bois de Boulogne park in the west of the French capital. French President Emmanuel Macron has promised to rebuild the world-famous attraction by 2024.
