Join in a traditional taste of Christmas--this service brings together singers and instrumentalists from across the university, and the audience joins in on “God Rest You, Merry Gentlemen,” “Away in a Manger” and “O Come All Ye Faithful." The foundation of Lessons & Carols is a Church of England service alternating Bible readings on the birth of Christ with musical selections. It was first performed in 1918 at King’s College, Cambridge University, and adapted from an order by E.W. Benson, later Archbishop of Canterbury. Featured Fresno Pacific ensembles will be the Concert Choir, Women’s Chorale, Men’s Chorus, Crosswind vocal/instrumental troupe, Handbell choirs, Pacific Brass and the University String Quartet.
