Default First in Advent

Today is the First Sunday in Advent, and in our church this morning we lit the first candle of our advent ring.

A voice of one calling:
"In the desert prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the wilderness a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain.
And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it.
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken."


Isaiah Chapter 40, vv 3 & 4 (NIV).

The season of Advent is with us again, and today is the first Sunday in Advent. In our service this morning, we lit the first candle of our Advent ring:-

"O come, O Come Emmanuel"

Yesterday evening, Rita and I attended a "Bach by Candlelight" evening in the Cathedral. It was performed by a local choir with professional soloists, and accompanied by the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra.

The evening included a number of pieces appropriate to the season, and ended with Bach's Magnificat in D:

My soul doth magnify the Lord;
And my spirit hath rejoiced
in God my Saviour
.

What a lovely way to mark the beginning of the season of Advent and Christmas.
