Event description

Description

Christmas Festival of Lessons and Carols is modeled after the service first performed at King’s College Cambridge (England) in 1918 and performed every year there and throughout the world, ever since. SFRV also honors a more recent tradition begun by King’s College in 1982, which is the commissioning of a new work to be debuted as part of the service. This year’s SFRV commission is: Angela Kraft Cross: Slumber Song

Also featured are carols and motets by: G.P. da Palestrina, Thomas Ravenscroft, and Raffaella Aleotti.
