A Singstunde is a traditional Moravian form of worship in which the congregation unites in singing a series of hymn stanzas. The stanzas are selected to develop a specific devotional theme. A Singstunde is sometimes referred to as “a sermon in song.”
For this Singstunde Advent and Christmas hymns were chosen, that can be sung in either German or English.
