St. John’s once again welcomes all who wish to worship this Christmas Eve. The 4pm service will be accompanied by piano and a 17 person choir, and the 8 & 10:30pm services will be accompanied by organ and a string trio. All three services feature plenty of opportunities to sing favorite carols, and most importantly, to celebrate the arrival of God’s greatest gift, the gift of God’s love made known to us through Jesus Christ.
The musical prelude to the 8 & 10:30pm services include the following line-up:
Ave Maria J.S. Bach/C. Gounod
Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring Cantata BWV 147 J.S. Bach
Pastoral Symphony from ‘Messiah’ G.F. Handel
Concerto Grosso No. 8 ‘Christmas’ A. Corelli
