On this day, St Cecilia’s Day, we celebrate the patron saint of music, and this Friday the Chamber Choir will celebrate the start of the Advent season with a concert in Blean Church, Canterbury.
The Choir presents its annual ‘Music for Advent’ concert, with a candlelit sequence of music and readings to launch the beginning of the period of Advent. Combining traditional and modern carols, prose, poetry and the magnificent Advent antiphons, the programme is a meditation on the meaning of Advent and the message of the coming of the Christ-child.
You can follow the Choir’s rehearsals on its blog, ‘Cantus Firmus,’ which has charted our progress towards Friday’s performance.
The concert starts at 7.30pm; proceeds from the event towards the Church Restoration Fund and Blean School Playground Improvements. Ticket-sales and details on our concert diary online here.
