DUMMERSTON -- On the longest night of the year, Dummerston Congregational Church invites all to its annual service of music and contemplative silence featuring medieval, Celtic and original music by Coracle (Cynthia Hughes, Celtic harp and John Crockett, cello and Celtic whistles).

"Into the Silence: A Service of Contemplative Music for Christmas and the Solstice" will be held on Friday at 7 p.m., at the church at 1535 Middle Road.

Coracle’s music is inspired by the sea and the land, by the cycle of the seasons and by the deep stillness of contemplation.

All are invited to an evening of respite from the busy buildup to Christmas, and a way to reconnect with the deep spirit of this magical time of the year, the time of deepest darkness, and the returning of the light.
