MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ -- The Community Presbyterian Church of Mountainside will present a festival of Lessons and Carols on Sunday, Dec.13 at 5:30 p.m. at its location on Deer Path.  All are invited to this 11th annual event, featuring the Church choirs, led by their director, Joseph Hill.  

Originating in 1880 at the Cathedral of Truro in Cornwall, England, this service was designed as a worship service for Christmas Eve.  “This program contains traditional English carols and choir  anthems from a variety of time periods and composers,” Hill said.

In 1918 the service was modified for use in the Kings College Chapel, Cambridge, England.  Since 1928, the British Broadcasting Company has broadcast the service live from Kings College to the rest of the world.

With readings from Scripture and carols sung by choirs and congregation the format has become one of the great Christmas musical traditions in all parts of the English speaking world.  Harpist and Mountainside resident, Joanne Hansen, with an international career, will join the choirs for this special occasion. Joseph Hill will command the church’s organ as its majestic tones bring the music to life.

A benevolence will be taken during the service and a reception will follow in the downstairs assembly room. For more information call 908 232 9490 or visit www.cpcmountainside.com
