Community Service of Lessons and Carols coming up Dec. 16

TERRE HAUTE — The Farrington Grove Chorale will present the seventh annual Community Service of Lessons and Carols at 4 p.m. Dec. 16 at St. Stephens Episcopal Church at 215 N. Seventh St.

The format of “Nine Lessons and Carols” was first presented on Christmas Eve in 1880 in Cornwell, England. In 1918, Kings College in Cambridge, England, presented its first “Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols.” It was broadcast in 1918 and, except for one year, has been broadcast to millions of people around the world every year since.

The St. Stephens service features people from Terre Haute churches reading familiar Advent and Christmas Scripture passages. Readers include representatives of the churches attended by the chorale members. The Farrington Grove Chorale will sing anthems and carols. Hymns will be sung by the congregation and chorale.

The chorale anthems include “O Magnum Mysterium” by Tomas Luis de Victoria; “Dona Nobis Pacem” by Z. Randall Stroope; “Adeste, Fideles” arranged by Daniel Powers; “Mary’s Lullaby” by John Rutter; an arrangement of Now the Holly Bears a Berry called “Sans Day Carol” by Stephen Caracciolo; and an unaccompanied piece called “Love Came Down At Christmas” by Stephen Chatman.

The Farrington Grove Chorale is a 20-voice chamber choir directed by Nancy Cobb Lippens and assisted by Jim Hershberger. Organist for the chorale is David Gibbs and pianists are Gibbs and Anita Gambill. There is no charge for admission.
