The interior of Salisbury Cathedral is illuminated by candle light during the annual ‘darkness to light’ advent procession on November 29, 2013 in Salisbury, England. The service, which begins with the medieval cathedral in total darkness and silence before the Advent Candle is lit at the West End, is one of the most popular services of the liturgical year. The annual advent service, which also takes place over tonight and tomorrow night and is seen by several thousand people, is a mix of music and readings during which two great candlelit processions move around the different spaces in the 750-year-old building which, by the end, is illuminated by almost 1300 candles and is a spectacular start to the Christmas season.
