Our renowned Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ pulls out all the stops to fill our wonderfully restored sanctuary with the glorious sounds of Angels, Wisemen, and Shepherds.
We end the service with John Rutter's traditional Candlelight Carol and Silent Night as the single candle of the Spirit of Christmas is passed from one to another to fill our hearts with a renewed light of hope and peace.
