Tuesday 1st December

Welcome to the first day of the St Giles’ Advent Calendar. Throughout advent each day we’ll share something linked to St Giles’, whether that’s music, photos, drawings or stories.

So, let’s start as we mean to go on, with some fantastic music from our Choir.

Gabriel’s message

The tune of this carol, arranged by Sir David Willcocks, is an old Basque noel melody; the words come from the prolific 19th century writer, Rev Sabine Baring Gould, who also wrote the words for Onward Christian soldiers.
