In the 1880s, Edward White Benson, the future Archbishop of Canterbury, organized the original Lessons and Carols service for the purpose of keeping men out of pubs on Christmas Eve. This innovative new vehicle for meditation and thought quickly became a model embraced worldwide. Our Christmas with Cantus presents a modern take on the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, reimagined for our world today. Join us as we both honor the age-old traditions and establish news ones for the next generation.
