Whereas for many people Christmas fades away as the New Year begins, with a final flourish perhaps at Twelfth Night, the Church sees the need to dwell for a longer period on the mystery of Christs incarnation in the world.
That is why, for example, crib scenes are not hastily packed away in January, but allowed to aid our meditation on the meaning of the arrival of this child in a manger. With the gospel narrative between Epiphany (January 6th) and Candlemas (February 2nd) re-telling the events of Christs childhood and early ministry, the sense of a great and mighty wonder unfolding before us is very clear, brought to a climax in Simeons vision of the child Jesus as light and glory Winchester Cathedral Choir The Boy Choiristers, Lay Clerks and Organists of Winchester Cathedral continue a thousand-year long tradition of leading choral worship.
Singing at an average of eight services each week during school term times, as well as at the great festivals in the Christian calendar, they are widely recognized as one of the countrys leading cathedral choirs. Their repertoire spans many centuries from plainsong to todays foremost composers.
