If you can attend only one Lessons & Carols event, this Advent Season - this is The One - come join us! St Peter’s Episcopal Church Choir will present its 44th annual Service of Lessons & Carols at 10:30 am, Sunday, December 15, 2019, in our historic 1851 church, located at 188 Rector St., Perth Amboy, NJ. The musical event is based on the traditional Anglican Lessons & Carols service, created in 1918, for the Choir of King's College, a constituent college of the University of Cambridge, in Cambridge, England; in which music reflects and illuminates the nine lessons, each of which is read by a different member of the parish community. The original service performed by the Choir of King's College was entitled Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols; but St. Peter’s has broadened the musical scope of the program to include both Advent, and Christmas-themed choral pieces. The St. Peter’s Choir maintains an exceptionally high standard of music, and performance, and has become well known for its music programs. The weekly church choir swells to a chorus of 35 for Lessons & Carols, as many musicians who have sung with Music Director Douglas Sheldon in the past, return for this unique event. This year’s composers range from Pablo Casals, Benjamin Britten, William L. Dawson, C. Darlington Richards, Russell Schulz-Widmar, Richard E. Averre, and Roger Hannay, to Roger Wagner, Roland Carter, Geoffrey Ainger/arr. William Llewellyn, and two pieces by a mainstay of St. Peter’s Lessons & Carols; the incomparable John Rutter; all providing musical selections, both familiar and novel!
