Mr. Cardinal Joan Josep Omella i Omella. The congress was organized by the Catalan Federation of Pueri Cantores under the slogan “Vos estis lux mundi” (You are the light of the world).
The gala concert was one of the main events of the congress. It involved more than three thousand singers from different countries around the world, such as Germany, Italy or Korea. In the concert the solo choirs alternated with the songs of all the singers, distributed by the plan of the temple, the cantorías and the zone for the white voices, since it was a participative concert. The choirs performed musical creations from all periods, from the Middle Ages to modern times.
To bring this concert closer to the public, the Sagrada Familia offered six hundred entrances to the general public, as diverse choral entities of the city of Barcelona.
With regard to the mass, the song also had a special role, since the three thousand singers were in charge of giving voice to the songs sung of the Eucharist.
