An annual tradition at W&L dating back over 80 years, the Candlelight Service returns to weave together the narration of the Christmas story through music, readings and carols. The telling of the "Incarnation" in this manner binds countries and cultures, dating back hundreds of years. From traditional favorites like F. Melius Christiansen's "Wake, Awake" to modern masterpieces like Jocelyn Hagen's "Mother's Song" and Elaine Hagenberg's incredible new arrangement of "My Song in the Night", let text and music intertwine for a peaceful evening unlike any other in Lexington.
