third week in Advent: connection
The third week of Advent is a time to consider and celebrate the connections of friends, family, and community. One of the ways we do that is through music, with voices raised in son together, listening to other give the gift music, and in quiet contemplation of musical messages.
Consider as well this week how much a kind word or act, or a smile or a shared laugh may mean to friend or stranger. This too is part of the work of Advent.

It is a gathering, indeed. Music for the days leading up to Christmas from the group Dordan fills one CD, while another finds Altan, John Whelan, Natalie MacMaster, Kathy Mattea, Cathie Ryan, and others raising their hearts in song.
