If you walk into Grace Cathedral and look up, you will see something quite unusual. The arches of the Gothic vaulting are present, but there is no ceiling between the arches. Barely visible is the underside of the roof, painted black. The illusion is of a Gothic structure without obstruction between it and the heavens. The choir of men and boys creates a similar effect in sound with this program of music from our own timesóclose your eyes and experience The Worlds Above from Grace Cathedral!
Recorded in 2000, "Music for Advent" is a program of nineteen hymns, carols and organ works for Advent and includes the Matin Responsory adapted from Palestrina (which opens many an Advent service in Anglican churches around the world), the hymn "Creator of the stars of night," "O Come, O Come Emmanuel," and Bach's "Wachet auf!" for organ. One of the Bay area's leading brass ensembles teams up with John Fenstermaker on the Grace Cathedral organ for a program that fills the Gothic space with sounds of Christmas.  A sonic spectacular!
