The holiday season is just around the corner, and with it comes “Lessons and Carols”, a holiday festival featuring the Albion College Concert Choir and Briton Singers.
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 www.albion.edu/music or call the Music Department at (517) 629-0481 or email us at email@example.com.
