Catholic Choirs Serenade Stockholm

Against all the odds a small Swedish group hosted one of the world's biggest church choir events in Stockholm this year, but not without a lot of work and even some religious disagreement.

Pueri Cantores is an international federation for Catholic choirs, and they hold an annual congress that brings together over 4,000 young singers from all parts of Europe, plus Korea. With only 3 smallish Catholic churches in the Swedish capital, the organisers had to turn to Sweden's Lutheran church for help, something that wasn't uncontroversial among some of the participants.
