In addition to carols sung by the congregation, the choir will sing Resonemus laudibus (arr. David Willcocks), Jesus Christ the Apple Tree (Elizabeth Poston), I Wonder as I Wander (arr. John Rutter), The Blessed Son of God (Ralph Vaughan Williams), A Spotless Rose (Herbert Howells), A Hymn to the Virgin (Benjamin Britten), The Infant King (arr. David Willcocks), Sussex Carol (arr. David Willcocks), Here Is the Little Door (Herbert Howells), and In the Bleak Midwinter (Harold Darke).
This service is being live streamed.
