About the event
This Festival is patterned on the annual Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols of King’s College, Cambridge, the backbone of which has remained virtually unchanged since it originated in England during the Victorian period. The Festival begins with the traditional processional hymn “Once in Royal David’s City” sung by a single treble voice joined by choir and congregation.
