3rd Annual Advent and Christmas Lessons and Carols
The Traditional Service of Nine Lessons and Carols
This year's 3rd Annual Service of Nine Lessons and Carols for Advent and Christmas titled "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear" will feature many beloved carols for Advent and Christmas. The concert/ service is based on the over 100 year traditional service of Nine Lessons and Carols sung in Anglican and Episcopal Churches across the world, and which was started at King's College in Cambridge, England.
The service includes congregational singing, and nine lessons from the Bible which take the listener on a journey from Adam and Eve, through various prophets, to the birth of Christ. Dakota Pro Musica will pair various carols and anthems with the readings to create a beautiful and meditative event which will be a great start to the week before Christmas.
Please come hear us at one of our beautiful church locations, including Assumption Abbey in Richardton, First Luther Church in Mandan, and McCabe United Methodist Church in Bismarck. The concerts have free admission, but a freewill offering will be accepted to help defray the costs of the concerts.
