#MfEMonday – Beginning of Advent

Yesterday began the Christian season of Advent – a season of expectation and preparation for celebrating Christ’s coming (adventus) into this world and looking ahead to his final advent as judge at the end of time.

In the northern hemisphere the natural symbols of darkness and light are powerfully at work in the traditional Advent themes of Death, Judgement, Heaven and Hell, captured in this setting of the Advent Prose: Drop Down ye Heavens from Above, by Judith Weir https://youtu.be/ymcjEPOwEGQ

And here’s an acoustic version of the Advent hymn Creator of the Stars of Night https://youtu.be/5ihAaM57rIE

A favourite for the East of England Singers at this time of year is James MacMillan’s O Radiant Dawn, sung here by Apollo 5, who you might remember from our first ever MfE Summer School https://youtu.be/5drCQq73ZBE (Oh to have their breath control!)

Have a good week!

Your friends at MfE.
