Advent quizzes galore!

If our Alphabetical Advent Adventure is whetting your appetite for all things musical, there are two Advent quizzes that you may like to try:

John Rutter’s Advent Quiz comprises 12 questions about carols. John has devised all of the questions and will be asking one a day every day from 1-12 December.

Here is yesterday’s (2 December):

You can follow John’s quiz on any of his social media channels.

And if you know your Nunc Dimittis, you might like to give Richard Shakeshaft’s quiz a try.

At midnight on each of the 24 days of Advent (which runs from 1-24 December this year), the first setting of the word ‘light’ from a Nunc dimittis which has been sung by Lichfield Cathedral Choir since the start of Advent 2018 will be presented on the Cathedral Choir’s website. Your task is to identify the name and composer of the Nunc dimittis. Being a regular attender of Evensong at Lichfield will give you a distinct advantage, but the quiz is open to everyone. Here are the details.
