For the 13th time there was an Advent play-along concert with the Höhnern in Cologne Cathedral – this year on the 2nd Sunday in Advent, December 4th, 2022.
Singing and making music together is under the motto “… and peace on earth”. Janus Fröhlich, ex-Höhner, conducted the interplay again; Petra Dierkes, Head of the Pastoral Care Department in the Archdiocese of Cologne, put together the program and will moderate the afternoon.
This year, too, personal requests and requests were accepted and candles were lit for this purpose at the jewelery Madonna in the cathedral. Prayer requests could be sent on Facebook/KoelnerDom during the live broadcast using the comment function. Anyone who prefers not to submit their candle request publicly can do so via Facebook’s message or messenger function. Individual intercessions were read out during the concert, so that the audience at home and the participants on site were connected through singing and prayer together.
The following songs were sung and played:
|1 – Be silent and listen|
|2 – We announce you|
|3 – Peace, peace, shalom, salam|
|4 – O Savior, open the heavens|
|5 – Hallelujah|
|6 – Open the door|
|7 – He holds the whole world in his hands|
|8 – O Lord, when you come, the world will be new again|
|9 – Ne special calendar for Advent|
|10 – Angel jitt et always aries – Gloria in excelsis|
|11 – No Huss leads to the most beautiful strife|
12 – Daughter Zion
