Christmas Concert at St. Paul’s, Delray

Church Christmas

Music at St. Paul’s presents A Festival of Lessons & Carols 

Sunday, December 11, 2022, 3pm 

Delray Beach, FL – On Sunday, December 11, 2022 at 3pm, Music at St. Paul’s will present a Festival of Christmas Lessons & Carols. Featuring the Chancel Choir of St. Paul’s under the direction of Dr. David Macfarlane, this service will include carol settings by John Rutter, David Willcocks, William Mathias, Mack Wilberg, John Rutter and Morton Lauridsen. The service will also feature congregational Christmas Carols and lighting of candles. Organ voluntaries by Cèsar Franck and Gerald Near will be played on the Moeller pipe organ.. 

“Since the early part of the 20th century, the Lessons and Carols Service broadcast from King’s College, Cambridge has been a cherished part of Christmas observations in the English speaking world,” says Director of Music Ministries Dr. David Macfarlane. ¨A series of readings leading from the Hebrew scripture prophecies to the New Testament birth story is complemented with Christmas carols from a variety of traditions to create a beautiful, seasonal celebration.” 

Music at St. Pauls was founded by Dr. Stuart Gardner in 1988 and has presented concerts of classical and world music to Palm Beach County audiences continually since that time. Now in its 34th Season, the series continues under the artistic direction of Dr. David Macfarlane. 

A Festival of Lessons & Carols is open to the public, and St. Paul’s is handicapped accessible. A freewill offering is encouraged to support the programming. For more information, visit musicstpauls.org.
