Festival of lessons and carols presented In a sanctuary adorned with seasonal greenery and red candles, the Dennysville- Edmunds Congregational Church present- ed its annual Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols candlelight service on Sunday evening, December 20. Over 100 people in attendance heard the Dennysville Festi- val Choir, under the direction of choir- master Colin Windhorst, sing 14 carols either arranged or composed by the late Sir David Willcocks, choirmaster at Kings College, Cambridge, England from 1957 to 1974, and under whom Windhorst had studied. The choir, standing in the back of the church, opened the service by singing Boris Ord's "Adam Lay YBounden," a 15th century carol. The first congregation- al carol was "O Come, All ye Faithful." Pastor Ron Windhorst gave a bidding prayer before the choir sang "Sussex Car- ol," a traditional English carol. The first lesson was read by Bill Attick. The traditional English carol "The Lord at First Did Adam Make" was followed by the second lesson, read by Mary McFad- den. The choir sang "A Child is Born in Bethlehem" by Samuel Scheidt before the congregation sang "It Came Upon the Midnight Clear." "O Come, O Come Em- manuel," preceded the third lesson, which was read by Roy Kilby. The choir sang the traditional French carol "I1 est ne le Divin Enfant" in French before Avis Whorley read the fourth lesson. "Birthday Carol" with words adapted from Luke 2 and "Silent Night" were followed by the choir's rendition of the traditional English carol "Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day" and the fifth lesson, read by Colin Wmdhorst. The choir presented the Basque carol "Gabriel's Message," Ruth Chaffey read the sixth lesson and the choir sang "The Infant King," with words by S. Baring Gould. The congregation sang "O Little Town of Bethlehem," the choir sang the Polish carol "Infant Holy, Infant Lowly" and the French traditional carol "Hush! My Dear, Lie Still and Slumber" and Scott Jones read the seventh lesson. The choir sang a second carol in French, "Quelle est Cette Odeur Agreable?" after Chris Paprocki read the eighth lesson. "The First Noel" was followed by the choir's singing "Mas- ters in this Hall," with words by William Morris, the ninth lesson read by Dave Gale and the final piece by the choir, "Lord of the Dance," with a melody adapted by Sydney Carter from a traditional Shaker song and arranged by David Willcocks. The congregation and the choir sang "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" as the choir recessed. This year marks the 30th year that the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols has been presented by this church.
