Modeled on the famous carol service broadcast each Christmas Eve from King’s College, Cambridge, this is our most popular choral service of the year. Ancient prophecies foretelling the coming of a Messiah and the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ birth are illumined by extra-biblical texts, anthems and Christmas carols that have inspired composers, choirs, and worshippers throughout the world and across time. For those who are traveling at Christmas and wish to celebrate the holy day with loved ones here at home, and for all who hold the music and message of Christmas dear, this service is a meaningful and joyous way to celebrate Christ’s birth. All are welcome! Invite a friend: it may be the best gift you give.

The return to Atlanta of one of the most celebrated choirs of men & boys in the world will move and delight listeners! At home in the University of Cambridge, the choir sings six Evensongs and a fully Choral Eucharist each week during university term, giving them a facility of musicianship and breadth of repertoire that is truly astounding. Over the past half-century, the Choir has toured independently throughout the world – on many occasions as official representatives of the British government – and released more than one hundred critically acclaimed recordings on international labels including EMI, Decca, Chandos, Hyperion and Naxos. This will be an extraordinary evening featuring some of the most beautiful boy treble singing one will ever have the privilege of hearing anywhere!
