#aChristmasMiracle videos from Ely Cathedral

We’re very pleased to announce the release of the first of three videos for advent that we recorded under the octagon in Ely Cathedral as part of their #aChristmasMiracle Campaign. This release is Praetorius’ simple and beautiful ‘Es ist ein Ros entsprungen’, setting the words of an anonymous German author from the 15th Century. Keep your eyes peeled on our facebook page for the next two videos!

A Spotless Rose is growing,
Sprung from a tender root,
Of ancient seers’ foreshowing,
Of Jesse promised fruit;
Its fairest bud unfolds to light
Amid the cold, cold winter,
And in the dark midnight.
