A podcast for Advent Sunday

Today’s episode of Abbeycast, A podcast for Advent Sunday, was recorded this week at the Abbey’s two Jesse Trees, made by the sculptor Benno Elkan (1877-1960), and representing scenes from the Old and New Testaments.

The podcast is led by the Very Reverend Dr David Hoyle, Dean of Westminster, with an address by the Reverend Mark Birch, Minor Canon and Precentor. Carol Hawkey reads Mark 13: 24-37. The anthem and hymn, Francisco Guerrero's Canite Tuba, and Lo, He comes with clouds descending, were recorded earlier this week in the Abbey by the Abbey Choir, conducted by James O’Donnell, Organist and Master of the Choristers.

Episodes of Abbeycast are being released regularly during lockdown, and otherwise to mark Feast Days and special anniversaries. Those wanting to be kept up to date with new releases can subscribe.

During this lockdown period, the Abbey is closed for public worship, but you are welcome to visit for individual prayer at times indicated on the website.
