Host Michael Barone presents this annual, live (pre-recorded a few days early due to the pandemic) service of spoken-word and music (choral and organ) broadcast from the chapel of King's College in Cambridge, England. The 30-voice King's College Choir performs the legendary Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols service of Biblical readings, carols and seasonal music.
Read more about how this year's live service will be done.
This year, as has been the tradition for decades, the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols will be broadcast live on radio stations around the world. But there will be a major difference: instead of hundreds of people packed into the medieval chapel, its pews will be empty, and the service will have been recorded a few days prior.
