Join us at Montreat Conference Center for Advent in September!
As a feature of the Montreat Worship & the Arts Conference, the Choirs of First Presbyterian Church of Asheville will lead an Advent Carol Service in Anderson Auditorium at 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, September 27th.
The service aims to capture something of the Advent longing and hope characteristic of the season. It features anthems and hymns by composers both ancient and modern. The service is structured around the great Advent Antiphons, known as the Great “Os”. These were sung originally as responses to the Magnificat at the Evening Office of Vespers from the 17th to the 23rd of December. Readings from scripture, anthems, and congregational hymns reflect on the theme of Christ who comes to judge and save his people.
The public is cordially invited to take part in this unique and beautiful service.
