Join us as we mark the beginning of the season of Advent with the Advent Procession.
The Advent Procession is punctuated by sung phrases, drawn from scripture, known as the Advent Antiphons. With one exception, all refer specifically to Jesus, who is regarded – by Christians at least – as the fulfilment of Jewish expectation and Old Testament prophecy. These ‘O’ Antiphons are addressed to God, calling him to come as teacher and deliverer.
The Cathedral choir will sing music including:
attrib. Palestrina – Matin Responsory
Macmillan – O Radiant Dawn
Beamish – In the stillness
Goldschmidt – A tender shoot
Guerrero – Canite tuba
Bruckner – Ave Maria
Lauridsen – O nata lux
