The Chancel Choir and Orchestra of Grace Lutheran Church (3714 W. Linebaugh Ave, Tampa)
will present a service of Lessons and Carols on Sunday, December 13h at 4:30 PM.
The tradition of the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols has been popularized by the Choir of Kings College, Cambridge, England where the first presentation was made in 1910. From the 1930’s it was aired each Christmas Eve and has continued to this day except for one year during World War II when it was silenced. British composer, John Rutter has arranged the Anthems and Carols which will be sung by the choir and congregation.
Featured in this event will be Soprano soloist Lisa Katt Watson and Harpist Dolly Roberts. A reception will be held following the service.
The Faith and the Arts Endowment Fund of Grace Lutheran Church has covered the costs of the program so there is no admission fee.
