LISTEN to the Beautiful Christmas Concert in the Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris the Cathedral's 1st Concert since the Fire



Notre-Dame Choir sang inside its cathedral for first time since their devastating fire in April of last year.  Choir members had to wear hard hats, as they performed inside the Notre-Dame cathedral due to the danger of the damaged structure. "Notre-Dame is a bit like our home," Henry Chalet, conductor of the Notre Dame Choir told the Paris BFM TV station. The conductor said he was "excited" to be able to enter the cathedral again after a year and a half. The choir has sung at the Paris church for 850 years. On Christmas Eve, 20 singers, two soloists and an organist performed a beautiful concert. There was no live audience in the cathedral itself, due to strict coronavirus protection measures, but it was broadcast live and you can watch it below.
