Advent Calendar: 16 December

We find ourselves in the third week of Advent, and from tomorrow our devotions take on a degree of new urgency as Christmas draws closer. From tomorrow we will hear each day a musical setting of an O antiphon - a meditation daily for eight days on some of the titles of the Messiah as used in the Old Testament.

For now, one last blast of the prophet Isaiah, who has been something of a companion during our daily worship in Advent. Today we hear a musical setting of Isaiah 40.6-11, set to music by Edward Naylor.

It is a motet for double choir, composed for the Choir of King's College in 1913, and is a very effective and sensitive interpretation of the text.

A reminder of the details of our upcoming Christmas services may be found here.
