Festival of Lessons & Carols
TIME: 7:30 pm
to 9:00 pm
The 33rd annual Festival of Lessons and Carols.
The traditional festival originated in England at the end of the 19th century and consists of music and readings that trace the mystery of salvation from the creation of the world through the birth of Jesus Christ. The festival first occurred at St. Patrick Cathedral in 1979 and featured the Norwich Diocesan Choir. Over the past thirty years the event has grown to include six choirs, brass and handbells. It has become a popular Christmas holiday event for the Cathedral parish as well as the Norwich community.
The choirs, totaling more than one hundred voices and ringers are all under the direction of Douglas Green, Cathedral Music Director. Accompanying on the Cathedral organ will be Michael McCarthy along with the Sterling Brass.
