Lessons & Carols

A Service of Lessons and Carols

Sunday, December 9, 10:30 am

This Advent, Lessons and Carols will be based on the O Antiphons, of which the hymn O Come O Come Emmanuel is a paraphrase. The exact origin of these Antiphons is unknown, however there are references to them dating back to the sixth century. In this special service, the choir will sing each of the original Antiphons. Lessons and music appropriate to each ‘Great O’ will be used, some will be familiar in a lessons and carols service, but a good bit of the music will be new to this service. Please join us for this very special Advent service.
