Advent: through the music of Handel’s Messiah

01/12/2017 - 03/12/2017 7:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Euan takes us on an Advent pilgrimage through Part 1 of the Messiah.  You will experience the deeply loved Handel Messiah in a new way: the released energy of its opening overture, the tenderness of “Comfort ye” that sings of God’s answer to us.  The soul’s landscape is shaken and faces a “refiner’s fire,” God’s answer to our fear is to join us in His Incarnation, and the whole becomes a journey to freedom.  The heart is prepared to receive God’s gift of Christmas. “Real depth and insight…has introduced me to layers of meaning..” (2016 participant comment).

Euan Tait is a librettist and poet, a retreat leader who works across the country, and a Lecturer in English & Creative Writing.  His work with composers includes two choral symphony librettos (for Paul Spicer, premiered in Symphony Hall, Birmingham in 2014, and for Kim Andre Arnesen, premiered in Trondheim Cathedral, 2016), and he has written texts for a number of US composers.  For further information, see Euan Tait.

Love and Suffering led by Karen Kilby

10/03/2018 12:00 am

Grace, love and joy are at the absolute centre of the Gospel, and of the Christian life. And yet we live in a world drenched in suffering. How do the two things go together? How do we think about them together, and how do we live them together? The day will combine theological input, conversation, and time for prayer and quiet reflection.

Professor Karen Kilby holds the Bede Chair of Catholic Theology at the University of Durham. For the last several years she has been engaged in a research project entitled ‘Love and Suffering,’ in collaboration with the Sisters of La Retraite.
