Christmas at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral

November 14, 2016  Posted in: Music, News

At Advent and Christmas the Church uses music to help worship soar: to express what we want to say to God for the birth of his Son, Jesus, in the stable at Bethlehem. The Advent Procession and the Service of Nine Lessons and Carols provide us with rich and elaborate music performed by the Cathedral Choir who use their skills to catch us up in a resounding chorus of praise to God. The service of Carols for All is an opportunity to join in the Church of Ireland’s rich musical tradition of congregational singing, led by the Choir and accompanied by the Cathedral’s majestic organ. We invite you to attend these services to offer your thanks to God with heart and mind and voice.
