Morley gave everyone hints, tips and suggestions about how to include advent music in our playing as well as including some interesting anecdotes about his own experiences. He demonstrated various styles from across the centuries and played a variety of composers including Flor Peeters, Kenneth Leighton and J.S. Bach.
