Candlelight Service: Lessons and Carols University Singers
An annual tradition at W&L, 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 Tomás Luis de Victoria's O Magnum Mysterium and Robert Shaw's Hacia Belén to modern masterpieces like Brent Pierce's How Still He Rests and Dan Forrest's Entreat Me Not to Leave You, let text and music intertwine for an evening unlike any other.
The event will be streamed live online.
