An annual tradition at W&L dating back over 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 F. Melius Christiansen's Wake, Awake to modern masterpieces like Stanford Scriven's Christ the Appletree, let text and music intertwine for a peaceful evening unlike any other in Lexington.
