Advent Lessons and Carols

A Service of Lessons and Carols for Advent will be held on Sunday, December 12 at 5:00 p.m. This service reflects the Advent season’s growing anticipation. Sung by the St. Peter’s Choir, the music includes works by Josquin des Prez, Elizabeth Poston, Paul Manz, and Judith Weir. 

A recital of Advent music for the organ played by Dr. Robert Lehman will precede the Advent Carol Service. The recital, which begins at 4:30 p.m., is about twenty-five minutes in length. Dr. Lehman has served on the staff of several distinguished churches, including the Washington National Cathedral (of which he is a Fellow); the Princeton University Chapel; Saint Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church, New York City; and, most recently, the Church of St. Michael & St. George, Clayton.
