Lichfield Cathedral Choir Advent Quiz 2019

LightAdvent 2019 picks up on one of the Cathedral's themes for the year: light. The word 'light' is said (or sung) every day in the Nunc dimittis, and this provides the backdrop for this Advent's challenge.

Quite simply, at midnight on each of the 24 days of Advent (which runs from 1-24 December this year), the bar from a setting of a Nunc dimittis which has been sung by the Cathedral Choir since the start of Advent 2018 will be presented here. The bar will be reproduced as it appears in commercially published editions of the setting, with the only difference being the words, as only the word 'light' will be included.

The answer to each day's setting will be the title of the Nunc dimittis by which it is usually known, and its composer. Entries will be accepted from the moment the bar appears to 23:59 on the same day. People can enter as many times as they like during the day, but only their final answer will be counted.

There will be daily winners selected at random from the correct answers, and one overall winner with the highest number of correct answers; if there is a draw, the winner will be selected at random. As the quiz is tied up with our repertoire, the ultimate winner will receive a copy of the newly published second edition of The Lichfield Psalter. The daily winners and the overall winner will be named on Christmas Day, and their names, along with the answers, will be available here.
