No, it's 15:30 Santiago time with the actual opening of the door at 16:30. The YouTube time displays your local time, so it says 14:30 for me in Portugal, and if you're seeing 9:30, that's your (US Eastern) time.Thank you, Ivar! Looking forward to watching this. That's 9:30 am Santiago time I assume.
I was told that this link does not work and to fix it, but I don’t know how to so the next best is to open youtube and search Carlos Nunez Library of Congress. It should be the first video. Mea culpa.Our last three caminos were planned around particular dates so that we could attend Carlos Nunez concerts. At one of those concerts in a smaller venue he played and explained how they made reproductions of instruments found in the cathedral in SdC. (I understood about 70% of what he was saying.) I think we were in Sevilla so he was speaking Castillian not Gallego, thank goodness! If you would like to listen to a little more before the Holy Door is opened you might want to watch his 2014 mini concert at the Library of Congress. Entertaining and educational. https://www.youtube.com/resultssearch_query=carlos+nunez+library+of+congress This link will bring up the video, which given where it was recorded should be much better.
The music and video is stunning, Ivar. I'll be watching with my computer connected to my TV and sound system. Spare a thought for my neighbours, but perhaps not, because it will be midnight here. What a fabulous way to welcome the new year!There will be some music in the ceremony tomorrow... they made replicas of the instruments in the portico de la Gloria. You can see a preview here:
I think it looks spectacular, but I also agree Jeff. Maybe too much?Does anybody else think the cathedral has been over renovated? Scrubbed to within an inch of its life!
Strange to seen the nave stripped of all the pews - just like it would have been "back then".
I think they follow the traditional liturgical program for such an occasion. I've seen very similar images from December 2009 (Holy Year 2010).They are staging this from the outside square. Is this typical or due to Covid?
They decided to do away with it. One reason is the dust it causes and I vaguely remember that they do no longer have a wall to strike down, not even a token one, in Rome either.Curious why there wasn’t the wall of stones at the door for the Archbishop to strike.
I don't see any commentary. I am watching the live stream on the forum. Why is that in Italian? It doesn't fit at all to the liturgy, imho. Are you sure that it is the Cathedral who put it on? The Cathedral always emphasise the importance of the meta (the destination) and not the journey.Non correre, pellegrino. La felicità – ciò che dopo ricorderai – non sta nell’alloggio ma nel cammino.

look at previous entryHelp! The recorded version of the Galicia TV stream () has gone dead, at least in the US. "Blocked in your country on copyright grounds." Another search result that fails for the same reason:
Does anyone have a workaround??
I think nobody reacted to your question yesterday. Perhaps @Pelegrin can tell us more.What is the meaning/significance of the flower display in Praza de Quintana?
