St Mary Magdalene's choir - a preview

One of the pieces that the St Mary Magdalene's choir will perform on 10 March is 'Magdalena' by Brahms, from his Marienlieder. (That's a bunch of musical pieces about the Blessed Virgin Mary, but he also included one about our patron, Mary Magdalene.) 

'Magdalena' is a haunting little piece about Mary Magdalene's encounter with an angel, and then The Lord, on the day of resurrection. We sing it in English, but there is a German rendition on YouTube.

Why not come along on 10 March and hear it live? We're air-conditioned...
