25 Catalan Christmas carols to sing in family

There are some to celebrate, some to sing a cappella, some that make us cry and laugh and dance. In Catalonia, we are experts in Christmas carols. At 11Onze we have compiled them for all tastes: the traditional ones, the enthusiastic ones, the modern ones and the ones for children. We have put together the definitive list to liven up every Christmas meal.

 

Christmas carols are the genre of oral tradition par excellence: we sing the traditional ones, but every year there are new ones. And they are all a celebration of winter, Christmas and fellowship. Musicologists have evidence of some melodies dating back to the 15th century. In the past, many of them were performed at church doors, and nowadays they are a regular repertoire of choirs and musical groups. One of the best-known carol recitals in Catalonia is the Concert de Sant Esteve, held every year by the Orfeó Català at the Palau de la Música Catalana.
