Your determination to surpass all the challenges and difficult obstacles is really outstanding to make thousands of Lebanese people enjoy the real spirit of Christmas.

It was a great honor to be part of this harmony that you have set, and Le Patio Boutique Hotel is committed to be part of the yearly Beirut Chants or any other event that you organize.
Again thank you and well done for the great achievement!

في هذه الاجواء الميلادية يقام هذا الاحتفال تحت عنوان بيروت ترنم بيروت الفن، بيروت الثقافة، بيروت الحضارة لمن ترنم اليوم؟ ترنم مع البشرية جمعاء لميلاد المخلص الفادي ترنم لملك السلام
ترنم مرددة مع الملائكة:المجد لله في العلى وعلى الأرض السلام من أجل السلام على الأرض ترنم بيروت، وترنم كنائسها وترنم مساجدها وطرقاتها لعل المسيح يولد في القلوب والضمائر
لعل المسيح يولد فينا وبيننا لننعم بالسلام، وليحل السلام علينا على لبنان، وعلى هذا الشرق التعيس

Je tenais à vous redire combien j’avais été émue aux larmes par la beauté de ces chants, dans toutes les langues,
la richesse des harmonies, l’état de plénitude et de repos de l’âme dans lesquels nous mettent de telles perfections.
Encore une fois un immense merci pour ce cadeau que vous faites à tous à l’approche de Noël, et surtout n’arrêtez pas!
Avec mes très amicales pensées,

Consul of France in Lebanon - 19 December 2015

Returned well to winterly Vienna, I want to thank you on behalf of entire Concilium musicum Wien for your outstandingly impressive work and your charming care for us! It was a great pleasure and experience to being part of “Beirut chants” 2015! What a remarkable Festival you are running there – sensitively selected groups, ensembles and location make your festival to one of the finest wehave ever visited since our foundation in 1982. Congratulations also to your young and dedicated Team, especially Hadi, who was always there for us and knew how to solve problems immediately.

Especially in our stressed, politically dominated and superficial times your Festival is a lightening star, representing culture and constancy, Chapeau!

We dearly hope to see you all soon again and please do never hesitate to contact us if you are in any need of music, organ, ensemble, ball or anything else.
Best wishes for you and your dears and merry Christmas, also in the name of Christoph.
Yours Peter Frisée
