Now my children have departed home, there's more chit chat by Whatsapp and less time spent with them (though perhaps they will get locked back into the family home quite soon). So this year I have sent them a Whatsapp message to kick off Advent and will be sending a new Advent and Christmas musical link every day. And I decided that you could have it too, but without the loving message from Dad.
So here goes. Day 1. We start gently.
You're in Wells Cathedral. The lights are off and the candles have been snuffed. It's evensong and mid-winter dark. Once the coughing and shuffling has stopped, silence descends and the Choir start the responses. I Look From Afar - YouTube
