Best known in the
Christmas form celebrated since 1918 at King’s College, Cambridge, a
Service of Lessons and Carols was first organized in 1880 by Edward White
Benson, Bishop of Truro, and later Archbishop of Canterbury. Trinity’s
Service is a variant of the King’s College Service and focuses on the
prophecy and Advent of the Messiah.
Trinity's Advent Service of Lessons and Carols features seven scripture
readings from the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden to the
Annunciation to Mary that she will bear the Christ. Interspersed among the
readings are congregational hymns, including the beloved "Lo! He comes
with clouds descending," choral carols, and anthems. The Trinity Choir
will sing music by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Charles Wood, and others,
including Dr. Jason Hobratschk.
Ms. Elizabeth LaJeunesse, Organist of St. John's Episcopal Church,
Tallahassee, will serve as guest organist for the 4:00 p.m. celebration.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive early for a special organ
Recital-Prelude performance which begins at 3:30 p.m.
A freewill offering will benefit music at Trinity, and all are warmly
welcomed to attend.
