Advent – Sheet Music & Scores

Along with the many festive and sweet Advent customs, there are also joyous musical Advent traditions, such as coming together to sing The Great Advent Antiphons, and the highly popular combination of chocolate, cinnamon, and music known as the feast of Saint Nicholas. Browse our sheet music and scores, and find all the right music for Advent today!

Originally, Advent was significantly longer than today, it lasted from Saint Martin to the feast of the Epiphany. The current order, with four Sundays, was established in the 6th century by Pope Gregory the Great, after whom Gregorian chant is named. Each Advent Sunday has its own character, which differs a little in the Catholic and Protestant churches.

Advent music is strongly influenced by the fact that Advent was considered a “tempus clausum”, a “closed time”, in which lavish celebrations were forbidden, and it was for this reason that Johann Sebastian Bach was not allowed to perform all of his Advent Cantatas in Leipzig.
