Instead it is Advent which takes precedence that wondrous season of expectant mystery, steeped in the devotion which Dr Rowan Williams has characterised as pure sitting and breathing in the presence of the question mark. For this reason much of the first part of this recording is dedicated to music suitable for Advent, looking forward to the coming of Christ in tones sometimes hushed and quiet, sometimes imprecatory and urgent. The idea is that the music follows that most familiar of Advent themes: that of turning darkness into light. We then turn to the repertoire of our carol services, contemplating the incarnation in a series of carols, some very familiar, some less so, but all redolent of the mystery and joy of the nativity of Christ. Within the mix, there are three pieces of solo organ music from J. S. Bachs mammoth output, played by the Colleges Informator Choristarum, Tutorial Fellow and Organist, Daniel Hyde.
