Lessons and Carols

Albion College Choirs presents the Annual Festival of Lessons & Carols

For over 50 years, this festival, featuring the Concert Choir and Briton Singers, has become a hallmark of the holiday season.

This event takes place on the first Sunday of December. Please see the “Upcoming Events” page for the official date.

The Service of Nine Lessons and Carols was designed by Archbishop E. W. Benson for use in the cathedral at Truro, England. The first formal event was held there on Christmas Eve, 1880. The service was later simplified and modified for use in King’s College Chapel, Cambridge, in 1918 by the Very Reverend Eric Milner-White, who was Dean of the Chapel at that time. The late David L. Strickler introduced the service to Albion College in 1966 and it has been a cherished tradition ever since.

This performance is free and open to the public. For up-to-date calendar information, visit our website at albion.edu/music, call the Music Department at 517/629-0481 or email us at [email protected].
