An English Advent Carol Serivce

An Advent Service of Seven Carols and Seven Lessons

Samstag, 2. December 2017 at 15:30 at Klosterkirche St. Ottilien

The "Munich English Choir" offers a lovely Carol Service at Kosterkirche Arch-Abbey of St. Ottilien, their specialty being the singing of the English "Advent Carol Service" on the evening before the 1st Advent. The Christmas story is told from the foretelling of the prophets in the Old Testament and then the Annunciation to Our Lady in the New Testament up to the birth of Our Lord. Following each Lesson a Carol is sung by the choir, based on the text of the Lesson or a different advent text. The congregation then responds with a congregational carol, which is a hymn based on an Advent or Christmas text.

The "Munich English Choir" are semi-professional singers who have a passion for english choral music.  The choir was founded in 2010 by the English Organist and Choirmaster Stephen Norton and now has over 36 members. The choir recently returned from a very successful tour to England singing in Gloucester, Birmingham and Coventry cathedrals.
St. Ottilien, is located about 40 km outside of Munich just west of the Ammersee near A96, also easily reachable by train or s-bahn.

A final note on MING Member Haar Disciples:  Riding on the wings of their best-ever season, the Disciples reached the Semi-Finals of the 1st Bundgesliga Baseball 2017 playoffs before losing the final game of the best-of-5 game series to the Bonn Capitals 5-2.  Finishing with a 33-14 record, the Disciples had a spectacular season featuring often outstanding pitching, great defense, timely hitting, and a number of exciting, nail-biting games right up to the final out.   Their website is www.disciples.de.  Hats of to the guys and their great performance throughout the year.  And to sports announcer Tim Collins.
