PERRYSBURG - St. Tim's Discovers will present a special Advent/Christmas presentation of the "Festival of Lessons and Carols" on Dec. 8, at 7 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public and will be held at St. Timothy's Episcopal Church, 871 E. Boundary, Perrysburg.
The event is part of the church's 'St. Tim's Discovers' music series. Now in its third year of performances, the series honors the talents of Toledo's creative performing musicians and ensembles in events resonating with the finest musical traditions of the church.
The historic Advent service was established in England at Kings College Cambridge in 1918 and tells the story of the fall of humanity and the promise of the Messiah as told in a series of short Bible readings interspersed with the singing of carols, hymns, and anthems.
Members of the Canterbury Singers, USA, the chancel choir of St. Timothy's Church, and organist Lyle Hecklinger will provide music for the evening under the direction of James Metzler. Assisting will be Nancy Lendrim, principal harpist of the Toledo Symphony Orchestra.
Officiating the service will be Rev. Jeffry Bunke of St. Tim's.
Incorporated by a small group of Toledo choral musicians, interested in the musical traditions of the Anglican/Episcopal church, the Canterbury Singers, USA is one of the most active American choral organizations singing in residence in English cathedrals. Over the last 24 years, it has served as choir-in-residence at Norwich, Durham, Canterbury, York Minster, St. Paul's London and Westminster Abbey among others.
The group was the first American choir invited to sing for Sunday morning Eucharist services at St. Paul's and, in 1995, was the only American choir invited to sing for one of the many VJ Day 50th Anniversary Commemoration Services held throughout England.
