Paul Ellison Directs 25th Advent Liturgy

AAM president Paul Ellison directed his 25th Advent Liturgy in December. Ellison instigated this service in 1991 and has directed all but two of them over the years. An expanded Schola Adventus sang, the organist was George Anton Emblom, and the officiant Fr Paul Allick, rector of Church of the Advent in San Francisco. Musical highlights of the service included Handl’s Duo seraphim, Ledger’s A Spotless Rose, Britten’s Hymn to the Virgin, and Palestrina’s Magnificat Primi Toni.
