Advent Carol Service

The speciality of the choir is singing the English Advent Carol Service on the evening before the 1st Advent in the Arch-Abbey of St. Ottilien. Following each Lesson a Carol is sung by the choir, based on the text of the Lesson or a different advent text. The congregation then responds with a congregational carol, which is a hymn based on an Advent or Christmas text.

Christmas Carol Service

Nine Lessons and Carols
The Christmas story is told from the foretelling of the prophets in the Old Testament and then the Annunciation to Our Lady in the New Testament up to the birth of Our Lord.

Choral Evensong

The choir also sings Choral Evensong, the choral setting of Evening Prayer in the Anglican tradition.  The form of the service and the liturgical texts are taken from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer.
The choir sings the Preces, the Responses and the Psalms appointed for the day. The “Magnificat” is sung after the Old Testament Lesson and the “Nunc Dimittis” is sung after the New Testament Lesson. The choir sings an Introit before the service and an Anthem after the Prayers.
