A 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 email@example.com
