An annual tradition at W&L, the Candlelight Service weaves together the sacred narration of the Christmas story through music, prayers, lessons, and hymns. The telling of the Incarnation in this manner binds countries and cultures, dating back hundreds of years. From traditional favorites like Kenneth Jennings' Thy Little Ones, Dear Lord to modern masterpieces like Morten Lauridsen's O Magnum Mysterium, let text and music intertwine for an evening unlike any other.
