Advent Windows (10)
The official opening of Nox atra – vox clara at the Vicarage, 33 Park Vista, is at 8:15pm this evening, where they’ll be serving refreshments.
‘Vox Clara’ is the 6th century Latin hymn from which comes the line ‘Cast away the dreams of darkness’ (in Fr Caswell’s 17th century translation).
“Our window uses simple weather symbols to represent the movement from darkness to light. In the symbol of the sun, the ‘bright voice’ emerges from the ‘nox atra’ – the black night – of storm and tempest, calling us to hope and joy…”
