Advent Lessons and Carols Sunday, December 9

Advent Lessons and Carols featuring our choirs and instrumentalists will be held in the Christ the King nave on Sunday, December 9 at 5:00 p.m. Each year, the service of biblical readings, congregational hymns, choral anthems, instrumental voluntaries, and prayers provides an occasion to practice Advent waiting and watching.
This year, the Christ the King Chorus and Choir will combine to sing Machet die Tore weit (Open the Gates Wide) by Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767). This cantata for choir, soloists, organ and instruments is a setting of Psalm 24:7-10. Albert LeDoux will conduct. In addition, the Choristers, Choir, and Chorus will augment our communal singing of Advent hymns and carols with anthems from their repertoires.
