Something Peaceful this Advent:
Lessons and Carols
This Advent the Music Ministry of Holy
Trinity is presenting something a little different to celebrate this
season of joyful expectation and hope: Advent Lessons and Carols.
“Lessons and Carols” is a traditional
artform which combines seasonal prayers and scriptural readings with
beautiful choral works in a concert setting. The evening will feature
our combined choirs, soloists and instrumentalists.
You may have seen the Lessons and Carols
program on television that features the King’s College choir. In that
setting the emphasis is on the birth of Christ but because our lessons
and carols concert takes place on the evening of the Fourth Sunday of
Advent we have taken special care to keep the celebration seasonal.
However, because Christmas Eve will only be a few days away there will
be a “hint” of Christmas reflected in the readings and music as well.
The concert presented last October was well
received and attended. We really appreciate your support. It is our
hope to present another memorable evening of artistry and beauty. The
Advent season affords us a special opportunity to let the peace of
Christ dwell in our hearts. Please, take this evening to experience this
peace in music and text. (December 14,2003)
