"Music will calm thee"

Maintaining Faith despite COVID-19

Advent - Christmas - 2020

Listen an Advent hymn: Hark! A Thrilling Voice is Sounding
Tune: Merton

    Hark! a thrilling voice is sounding.
    "Christ is nigh," it seems to say;
    "Cast away the works of darkness,
    O ye children of the day."
Listen an Advent hymn: On Jordan's Bank
Tune: Winchester New

    On Jordan's bank the Baptist's cry
    announces that the Lord is nigh;
    awake and hearken, for he brings
    glad tidings of the King of kings.
Listen to an organ setting of the Christmas tune
"In dulci jubilo"
Listen for the Zimbelstern, the turning star of bells!
Listen to Marcel Dupré's setting of "In dulci jubilo"
Listen to J.S. Bach's setting of "In dulci jubilo" (BWV 608) from his Orgelbüchlein

Listen to Louis Vierne's festive "Carillon" from his Pieces in Free Style inspired by the resounding bells in the chapel of the Château de Longpont in Aisne, France

All best wishes for happiness and good health in 2021!
