Lessons and Carols to take place this evening in Sacred Heart Chapel
The OLLU Music Program will present Lessons and Carols, an ecumenical Advent service, at 6:30 p.m. today in Sacred Heart Chapel. It will feature the choirs of OLLU, Musica Sacra San Antonio, and Northwood Presbyterian Church.
Lessons and Carols is an ecumenical Advent service inspired by the choral tradition of King’s College, Cambridge. Readings are centered around the birth and second coming of Jesus Christ, and are accompanied by anthems, hymns, and carols of the season. Biblical themes of social justice are brought to the forefront, and glorious music, both ancient and modern, rings through the world-class Sacred Heart Chapel.
Dr. Owen Duggan is the music director. Professor Mark Marty is the co-director and organist. Dr. William Benefield also is an organist.
