An Advent Calendar of Christmas Music. 2nd December.

Veni, Veni Emmanuel is the traditional choice for the first Sunday of Advent and I couldn’t resist putting links to two performances today.

This is music that has stood the test of time, having fifteen century origins (or even eighth century according to some sources). It is best sung in latin – I still remember having to fix a very beady eye on some gigglers at the back of my choir when conducting a rehearsal using the version with words in English…

I am a musician, teacher and writer, and live in London with my family. I enjoy playing the piano and gossiping with my friends (essential research for my writing). My books reflect my love of music and a tendency not to take life too seriously.
