The Choir

This past December 5, 2010 on the Second Sunday of Advent, the choir led the congregation in our traditional Service of Lessons and Carols for Advent at the 11:15 a.m. liturgy. This liturgy was designed to incorporate the Advent themes that included readings from the Old and New Testaments that illuminate the proclamation of Christ's birth. This year's Lessons and Carols included music spanning five centuries: Palestrina, Stainer, Rickards, Biebl, Noble, Willcocks, Manz, and Krebs. A Service of Lessons and Carols for Advent was first introduced to Holy Comforter in 1980 but changed to Christmas Lessons and Carols on the first Sunday after Christmas in 1981 and 1982. It was re-instated in 1991 as an Advent tradition by then Director of Music, J. Gary Stuart.
