Advent. Time to pause, reflect, prepare. Because God is on the move, and nothing will be the same again. A good opportunity to take time out in tense and uncertain times.
We'll be following Luke's version of the story. The way he tells it, a lot of people end up singing as they find themselves responding to God's promises and caught up with Christ's arrival. This week we start with Elizabeth, waiting for the birth of her son, and singing quietly to herself... "The Lord has done this for me. In these days, he has shown his favour."
On Saturday, we take a little extra time to sing Advent Carols - the quieter ones we don't sing at Christmas. Join us at 5pm, as well as 10am on Friday and 10.30am on Sunday.
We welcome Cairo Choral Society and Cairo Festival Orchestra for two Handel Evenings. This will be an oasis of beautiful music and thoughtful Psalms (96, 42 & 68). The concerts on Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th at 8pm are free, and there will be a retiring offering for the Choir and the Cathedral.
