St. Mark's is having its annual Festival of Lessons and Carols on Sunday the 18th. I got the list of music from the Music Director this afternoon and shall be putting a link on our home page soon. It is quite a joyful noise.
A slightly different variety of musical experience is available at our regular Evensong and Organ Recital series. Evensong is at 5:30 and is a mostly-sung service in a very traditional style with anthems by our Schola Cantorum. The recital starts afterwards, usually at 6:10.
I will note for the liturgically curious that Dec 11 is one of the two Sundays of the year when one of the appropriate liturgical colors is rose-pink. (Yes, we possess the proper vestments. They will be out in full fig in the am, but a couple of pieces will be visible at Evensong.)
A festive reception follows both events.
If you think you may come ... we'd love to have you! Gimme a shout-out, in comments or in email. We are across the street from Cal and parking is not usually a big problem.
