FESTIVAL OF MARIAN HYMNS
Mothers' Day Sunday, May 13, 4:00 pm
St. Mary's Cathedral, 1111 Gough St., San Francisco
The Benedict XVI Institute for Sacred Music and Divine Worship invites you to a Mothers' Day Festival of Marian hymns at the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption, offering an innovative "Lessons and Carols" format to honor Our Mother. The congregation (not merely an audience) will sing together simple versions of classic and new hymns to Mary. The songs will be followed by spiritual reflection. And then the gorgeous sacred polyphonic form of the hymns will be sung by a 16-voice professional choir, affectionately dubbed "The Benedict Sixteen."
Sunday, June 3, 2018
On the afternoon of Sunday, June 3, the National Shrine will host another performance of the Golden Gate Boys Choir and Bellringers, and Changed Voices Mens' Choir. More details will be provided in upcoming bulletins, so mark your calendar!
