Festival Of Lessons And Carols Lestening CDItem #: WB.GB9710CD
For the many churches that do a service of Lessons and Carols every year as well as those new to the tradition, Hal Hopson presents a new edition of that beloved service all in one cover. 'A Festival o f Lessons and Carols' contains a variety of carols -- some familiar , some unfamiliar -- arranged in Hopson's trademark majestic style, as well as an original setting of a medieval text. The traditional nine lessons have been updated by Mr. Hopson and reflect today's i mportant linguistic considerations, such as inclusive language, nat ural poetic phrasing and clarity of thought. The service can be per formed with organ alone, but the optional instrumentation offers a greater variety and color. Duration approx. 50 min.
