Our ringers and singers are looking forward to sharing the musical joys of the Christmas season with you! We will sing selections from Handel’s Messiah and modern carols by Gustav Holst, Ethan McGrath, and John Rutter; we will also present instrumental and vocal settings of Away in a Manger, The Holly and the Ivy, I Wonder As I Wander, Jesus Rest Your Head, Lo How a Rose, O Come Emmanuel, Rise Up Shepherd and Silent Night. The Children’s Choir will perform its Nativity musical on December 10, and on December 17 the adult choirs will offer a service of Lessons and Carols. On Christmas Eve, please bring your heartiest caroling voices to the Sanctuary to help us proclaim the birth of the Christ Child!
