Advent Sunday
Exit music for Advent Sunday 2021
"O Come O Come Emmanuel" sums up the start of the Christmas period. The tune was originally written in the 15th century in France but the words, originally in Latin, go back over 1200 years to monastic life. The tune is modal and it creates a feeling of anticipation. Martin.

A Church of England resource with a selection of hymns, reflections and prayers for those not on the internet.  The service is supported by the Church of England nationally as well as through the Connections group based at Holy Trinity Claygate in Surrey and the Christian charity Faith in Later Life. Although thousands of churches across the country are now running services and prayer groups online while public worship remains suspended, many people – especially older people – do not have access to the internet. The line also recognises the impact of social distancing restrictions and self-isolation measures on those suffering from loneliness.
