International Competition for A Jubilee Hymn

Concurso internacional para escoger el himno del  Jubileo

At the beginning of 2014, the International Liturgical Commission of the Order of Preachers launched an international competition for a hymn for our Jubilee 2016.

We invited a dozen international composers from several continents, some well known outside of the Order and others from within the Order (brothers, sisters and laity), to participate.

An international jury of specialists – who come both from within and outside the Order – will judge the winner in June.

So, we shall have a hymn that can be sung in the three official languages (English, French and Spanish) for all the members of our Dominican Family.
