dlr Libraries are delighted to present Tim Thurston’s Recommended Listening: From Darkness to Light. Regulars to dlr LexIcon’s annual series will be aware of Tim’s particular love of the season of Advent and we know you will enjoy his recommendations for the four Sundays of Advent beginning 29 November and also for the Christmas season.
For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Tim to date, he is a broadcaster, lecturer and writer and his programme on sacred music, Gloria, ran for 18 years on RTÉ Lyric FM. It is a privilege to share in his enthusiasm and deep knowledge of music. Tim's wife, Anne, is a theologian with a love of poetry and her suggestions for some appropriate seasonal poems and writings are listed with this compendium also.
Check out the music suggested by Tim on YouTube, Spotify or Freegal. The booklet will be available in all dlr Libraries. You can also search dlr LexIcon's extensive CD collection including a comprehensive selection of classical and jazz CDs donated by Tim over the last few years.
