On December 11 at 7pm we will once again offer our beloved service of Lessons & Carols, in the tradition of King’s College, Cambridge. We begin the service with the sanctuary dimly lit, breaking the silence with the solo voice of a child singing a verse of ‘Once in Royal David’s City’. We then follow the prescribed readings of this particular service, from the Fall of Man to the birth of Jesus. Between readings are sung carols and hymns in response to each lesson. This year we will feature works of Norwegian composer Gjeilo and American composer Thomas LaVoy. The service will be sung by all six choirs of The Redeemer. Admission is free. Donations go to the Margaret Orr Memorial Choral Scholarship.
