On select Fridays in December, enhance your visit to the Met with a stop in the Medieval Sculpture Hall, where you can experience a pop-up concert featuring hauntingly beautiful hymns and carols from the Byzantine Empire. Performing antiphonally, the musicians masterfully alternate parts in multiple languages, including Greek, Arabic, Armenian, and Russian.
