Invitation from Cantus Firmus

An Advent Journey, St Edmundsbury Cathedral,
Sunday 5th December 2021

Cantus Firmus Choir has been invited by the Royal School of Church Music to provide the core choir for a special Advent Service at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, on Sunday 5 December. We will be joined by a selection of musicians, along with the VivaVoce chamber choir from London School of Theology.

Singers will need to attend three of the following four rehearsals (or all four if possible):

Monday 15 November, 7.30 – 9.45pm, St Edmundsbury Cathedral (The Edmund Room) IP33 1LS
Tuesday 23 November, 7.30 – 9.45pm, St Edmundsbury Cathedral (The Edmund Room) IP33 1LS
Monday 29 November, 7.30 – 9.45pm, Shepherd Drive Baptist Church, Ipswich IP8 3SL
Friday 3 December, 7.30 – 9.45pm, St John’s Church Hall, Ipswich IP4 4QE (tbc)

On the day itself (5 December), singers will be needed at the cathedral by 2pm for the final rehearsal. The service is at 5pm, ending by 6.15pm.

Rehearsals will be carried out in line with the Covid guidance at the churches in which they are held. Mask-wearing is optional (though recommended when not singing), and seating will be arranged to allow for as much distancing as is practical. So that we can help protect each other, we recommend that everyone takes a lateral flow test, where possible, up to 48 hours before attending.

Cantus Firmus relies on donations to cover rehearsal and music production costs. The suggested amount for this event is £15 per person, though you may donate more or less as you are able. This amount includes music hire for the day.

Advance booking is essential, as places will be limited.

If you’d like to sing, please complete THIS ONLINE FORM as soon as possible.

Please help us to publicise the event by sharing it on social media, or by sending details to friends. You can point them to THIS PAGE, or send them THIS POSTER. If possible, please print the poster and display it in your church.

Best wishes
