Candlelight Service: A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols
Thursday, December 7, 2017
An annual tradition at W&L dating back more than 80 years, the Candlelight Service featuring the University Singers weaves together the sacred narration of the Christmas story through music, prayers, lessons, and hymns. The telling of the Incarnation in this manner binds countries and cultures, dating back hundreds of years. From traditional favorites like Paul J. Christiansen’s Infant Holy, Infant Lowly to modern masterpieces like Malcolm Sargent’s Silent Night, let text and music intertwine for a peaceful evening unlike any other in Lexington.
No tickets are required.
Open seating in Lee Chapel begins at 7 p.m.
