A Festival of Nine Lessons & Carols: The Centenary Service (Download)
The story of the fall of humanity , the promise of the Messiah , and the birth of Jesus is told in nine short Bible readings or lessons from Genesis, the prophetic books and the Gospels, interspersed with the singing of Christmas carols , hymns and choir anthems. Up to the late 19th century, the singing of Christmas carols was normally performed by singers visiting people's houses, and carols — generally considered to be secular in content — had been excluded from Christian worship. In the Victorian era , the rising popularity of hymnody encouraged church musicians to introduce carols into worship. At around this time, the composer and organist John Stainer was compiling a collection, Christmas Carols New and Old , and during Christmas he introduced carols into the service of Choral Evensong at St Paul's Cathedral in London. The Choir of the Cathedral will sing a number of carols in the Cathedral on Christmas Eve, the service commencing at 10pm. We understand that this is at the wish of many of the leading parishioners and others.
