Lessons and Carols

Duration: 1 Hour 30 Minutes
Location: Goodrich Chapel

 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.
