An atmospheric and breath-taking candlelit service of music, readings and prayers for Advent, in celebration and anticipation of the arrival of Jesus Christ, the Light of the World. The service will include music from the Choir of York Minster and feature the world premiere of the winning entry from our Grand Organ Composers’ Competition (19 and over category) to celebrate the completion of the instrument’s once-in-a-century refurbishment.
