The Church of the Advent, located in Boston’s Beacon Hill section, has been involved with the Anglo-Catholic movement since its founding in the mid-nineteenth century. Within this framework, the church devotes considerable resources to maintaining a fine music program. From its location in a region rich in world-class musicians, the Advent Choir offers a varied repertoire performed to the highest standards, supported by the historic Aeolian-Skinner organ, a landmark of the American Classic Style. The 14 traditional hymns, from various Catholic sources, presented here were recorded under the direction of Andrew Scanlon, Advent organist and director, on June 29, 2023.
