How does Christmas feel, how does Advent sound?
The musicians Sabine Lindner and Dominik Schneider have set themselves the task of capturing (pre-) Christmas moods.
Expectant excitement, joy, festivity, a solemn rush of sound, but also the intimate wonder, the incomprehensible mystery in the face of God's Son, the innocent child who is to redeem the world, resound in the Advent and Christmas carols from almost a millennium.
The songbook of Anna of Cologne, a 15th-century beguine, reads "The angel came with joy".
In the concert, the Christmas Carols from Ireland and England are sung to the harp, quintern and flute, Italian Laude sings cheerfully and lively about the glory of the heavens and peace on earth. Hildegard von Bingen pays tribute to Mary in a song as the greening rice.
The journey finally takes the concert-goers back to the roots:
The Gregorian chant, which has been sung in churches and monasteries during Advent and Christmas for 1200 years.
The musical pieces are framed by stories about their origins, Christmas customs from earlier centuries and meditations.
Free admission. We would be delighted if you would support our church music work with your donation.
