Music, Mince pies, and Mulled wine: CONCERT ON SATURDAY – Veni Emmanuel

Veni Emmanuel poster december 2014A festival of Advent carols, candlelit readings, Gregorian Chant, soaring polyphony, gothic arches, mulled wine and mince pies is on offer at St Augustine’s this weekend.

Artists-in-Residence, The Victoria Consort, will sing a concert of seasonal music in St Augustine’s, Ramsgate, on 13th December at 7.30pm

Entitled Veni Emmanuel, this concert focusses on the lead-up to Christmas with music based on the “O Antiphons” – particular words from the Old Testament that point towards the birth of Jesus at Christmas.

The music comes from the sixteenth and twentieth centuries. Readings will intersperse the musical pieces. A perfect end in such a building, the concert will end Morten Lauridsen’s soaring O Magnum Mysterium.

Mulled wine and mince pies, and jollity, will follow the concert in the Cartoon Room of The Grange, next to the church.

Tickets are £10, available on the door or in advance from office@augustineshrine.co.uk
