The Bookroom

Festival of Lessons and Carols

Posted on November 30, 2011 in category: Announcements

St. Andrew’s Choir will be presenting a Christmas concert on December 18 at 7:30 p.m.  Admission will be a free will offering with proceeds going to the Good Food Junction grocery store at Station 20 West.

The concert will follow the “Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols” format, which is an order of service made famous by the annual performances from King’s College, Cambridge.  The format for the “Lessons and Carols” was created in 1880 by Edward White Benson, later Archbishop of Canterbury but at that time Bishop of Truro in Cornwall.  It was further adapted in 1918 by Eric Milner-White, dean of King’s College Cambridge.  Lessons and Carols occur in Anglican, Roman Catholic, Lutheran and Presbyterian churches.  St. Andrew’s will be using seven of the nine lessons and after each lesson there will be a choir anthem, solo or a carol sung by choir and congregation.

Please join us in this enchanting, inspirational evening of Christmas readings and song.
