Mallorca Cathedral –Palma–. Calenda sermon, celebration of the word, eucharist officiated by the Bishop of Mallorca. Capella Mallorquina Choir. Calenda sermon and Chant of la Sibil·la. It is a prophetic chant sang in the churches of Mallorca during the Midnight Mass since the Catalan conquest. Mallorca is the only place, together with Alghero (Sardinia), where it is still celebrated. It is usually sang by a boy dressed in a robe, cloak and hat and holding an upright sword during the entire chant.

Lluc Sanctuary –Escorca–. Chant of la Sibil·la performed by a member of the Escolanía de Lluc, popularly known by the name of els Blauets because of the blue cassock the children wear in celebrations.
