New Life's Advent Festival Of Nine Lessons And Carols on December 3rd, 2017.
Theme: In 1934, sixteen years after he had introduced to King’s College, Cambridge, the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols for Christmas Eve, the Dean, Eric Milner-White, composed a further service—a Procession with Carols upon Advent Sunday. His desire for more imaginative forms of worship appears in the preface he wrote to that service: In the old English liturgies, the Advent Offices made a preparation for the coming of our Lord to this earth far more vivid and eager than those of our present prayer book. So an Advent carol service, if without precedent, is not without suitability, if it helps to express “the desire of all nations and ages.” The purpose of the service was not to celebrate Christmas, but to expect it.
