Many around the world are familiar with a Christmas tradition held each year at King’s College Chapel in Cambridge, England. The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols has been performed almost contiuously since 1918, and broadcast around the world by the BBC since the 1930s.
This year, the Anglican Cathedral in Second Life will host its own version of the Festival, with readings from the stories of the Bible by parishioners. There will be two services, one today (December 19) at 10:30 p.m. SLT, and the second on December 20 at noon SLT. All are welcome to come and listen to these messages. Readings will be by voice, so please have your voice chat activated to listen to the service.
More information about the Festival, as well as other services planned for the week of 4 Advent and Christmas Eve/Christmas Day can be found at the Cathedral blog.
UPDATE, December 22:
The Cathedral’s blog has a piece on the two services, complete with links to YouTube performances of the carols by various groups.
