Harvard University Choir's 12 Days of Carols: Sussex Carol
Get into the holiday spirit! Starting on Dec. 1 through Dec. 12, the Memorial Church will release a new video every day from last year's 106th Annual Christmas Carol Service.
The Annual Christmas Carol Service, sung by the Harvard University Choir, is America’s oldest carol service. In 1910, the newly appointed University and Choirmaster, Archibald T. Davison, and Plummer Professor of Christian Morals, Edward C. Moore, devised the first annual Christmas Carol Service for Harvard University. The liturgy they prepared has remained virtually unchanged since: three lessons from scripture, interspersed with choral and congregational carols, beginning with “Adeste, fideles” sung in Latin. Over a century later, this service continues to be a cherished part of the festive season for the Harvard and Cambridge communities. Read more about 12 Days of Carols: Day 12
We are pleased to release an audio selection of Christmas carols from last year's 106th Annual Christmas Carol Service, recorded Dec 13 & 14, 2015. Performed by the Harvard University Choir under the direction of Edward Elwyn Jones. Enjoy!
