At this concert, you’ll have the chance to hear a standard of German religious music with the Câmara Bomtempo Choir, discover traditional Christmas songs from different countries of Latin America with the Compasso Choir and even Christmas songs from less obvious European countries, like Croatia or the Czech Republic with the Musaico choir.

This meeting of music of diverse origins will be at São Jorge de Arroios church, located in the city’s most multicultural area. The ex-libris of this big and simple temple is the cross found in its churchyard – this Manueline-style piece was commissioned at the beginning of the reign of King John III to commemorate the beatification of Queen Elizabeth of Portugal and is considered a national heritage monument.
