The St. John’s Adult and Youth Choirs;
Scott Lamlein, director; Floyd Higgins, organ.
In the tradition of King’s College, Cambridge, prepare your soul for the Christmas miracle with carols for choir and organ. This event is a long-standing tradition at St. John’s – a “must” to center your soul during the Advent season.
Congregational Hymns: Once in royal David’s City (Irby, descant Halley); O little town of Bethlehem (Forest Green); O come all ye faithful (Adeste Fideles, descant Willcocks)

Tomorrow shall be my dancing day (Gardner)
