Lessons and Carols
« on: November 20, 2021, 03:30:11 PM »
I just had a request from our Sunday School music director for services of lessons and carols that she can use as a jumping-off point.  Anyone have such an order they would care to share?  Thanks.

Steve,

She was thinking of using it as a starting point for the Sunday School Christmas program.  We are getting a LATE start and the thought was that it might be easier to simply have familiar Christmas carols and the lessons that go along with them, I believe.

I have the lessons-and-carols pageant we have done for a number of years. Sent you an email - happy to share it. It's pretty adaptable to any number of students.

    If you have Carols for Choirs edited and arranged by Reginald Jacques and David Willcocks, the service is in the back of the book.

Thank you to all who provided me with ideas, resources, and even copies of services!  I gave them to our director this morning.
