Welcome to Amazing Grace’s Traditional carol service. We so excited to share this time with you.
The History of carol singing may go back as far as the medieval era, and has appeared in literature for many years, but it was during Victorian times it became really popular
However carol singing really came into its own in Victorian times, with the advent of the Victorian Christmas. This was when Christmas became a holiday families could enjoy, and celebrate, and music in the home was a big of the celebrations. It would become tradition to sing carols after the Christmas meal.
The first carol service is believed to have been held at Truro Cathedral, Cornwall, December 24, 1880. It was organized by by Rev. G. H. S. Walpole, later the Bishop at Edinburgh, and Bishop Edward White Benson, later the Archbishop of Canterbury
In that tradition we will sing carols together and also have songs and instrumental pieces interspersed that are for you to enjoy listening to.
We will let you know which are which. Please stand and join in singing Angels We have Heard On High and Do You See What I See.
