On Sunday, Dec. 25, the Choir of the Cathedral of the Madeleine will sing a Christmas Day Vespers service at 5 p.m.

Drawing upon the rich heritage of plainsong, polyphony and other choral literatures, the choir will offer this ancient evening rite in the spacious beauty of the Salt Lake City's Catholic Cathedral, at the corner of South Temple and B streets. Selected works will include "O Magnum Mysterium" by de Morales and "Nunc Dimittis" by Holst.

The Choir will be under the direction of Gregory Glenn. Organist Douglas O'Neill will perform on the Cathedral's Eccles Memorial Organ.
