Advent Carol Service, Sunday 2 December 2012 at 7pm

The season of Advent summons us to the beginning. The lavishness of God’s compassion and mercy frame yet another year for us. With the arrival of the First Sunday of Advent we give our attention once more to the mystery of salvation. The hymns, readings and anthems are especially chosen, so come and enjoy the gift of our talented readers and our wonderful Choirs. The anthems this year are: Creator of the stars of night (Malcolm Archer); A tender shoot has started (Otto Goldschmidt); This is the record of John (Grayston Ives); Bogoridtsye Dyevo (Arvo Pärt); Jesus Christ the Apple Tree (Elizabeth Poston); Hosanna to the Son of David (Weelkes).  Enquiries: Dean’s Office 4929 2052 cathedral@newcastlecathedral.org.au
