Happy New Year!

We celebrate the start of the Church’s year on Advent Sunday, 30 November.  Our musicians will be in action on three times at the Minster.  The morning sees the Choristers and Choral Scholars singing at the Sung Eucharist at 10.30am.

In the afternoon, a quartet of singers from our choirs sing at the St Andrew’s Hospice service, 30 November also being St Andrew’s Day.

The culmination of the day is the beautiful candlelit Advent Carol Service, sung by the Minster Singers, at 6.00pm.  Including music by Palestrina, Joubert, Robert Walker, and others, this is a wonderful, reflective way to start the season of Advent, as we look forward to Christmas.
