Those who want to compete have to submit their entry by March 25.
The Dicastery for Evangelization, which is coordinating preparations for the Jubilee Year of 2025, is hosting a competition for the Jubilee hymn.
Participants are asked to set music to an Italian text, which speaks of evangelization in the world.
The hymn is intended to have a liturgical purpose and should be capable of being sung by a Church congregation and by a schola cantorum. It should be submitted with a score for voice and organ.
Entries in the competition are required to be sent in by 25 March 2023. All the details are here.
Application forms for the competition will be accessible at www.iubilaeum2025.va/en/inno.html, starting January 16, 2023.
The Church celebrates a Jubilee every 25 years.
Each Jubilee Year has a theme. Pope Francis has chosen “Pilgrims of Hope” as the theme of Jubilee 2025.
A Jubilee is “ordinary” if it falls after the customary 25-year period, and “extraordinary” when it is proclaimed by for some outstanding event. The 2025 Jubilee will take place in line with the 25-year gap period.
