Salisbury Cathedral's Advent Service: From Darkness to Light
The Cathedral’s advent services are an unique blend of theatre and worship, inspired by ancient liturgical and musical traditions. A candlelit procession of thirty two Cathedral choristers accompanied by adult singers, wends its way around the medieval building, pausing amongst the congregation to sing. From the West Gallery high above the nave the sound of the all-women plainsong choir floats above the congregation. A chorister’s solo at the start contrasts with a congregation of nearly two thousand as they give voice to the great Advent hymns.
