Music for Christmastide!

A special treat: This podcast episode features many of the carols and organ preludes from Ascension’s worship services via Zoom on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and the First Sunday of Christmas. They were recorded by Dr. Dennis Keene and the (socially distanced) Ascension Choir in the chancel and nave of the church building itself and feature the Manton Memorial Organ.

(At an hour and 20 minutes, in stereo, the file is over 120MB in size, so if your connection is slow please be patient as it downloads.)
