New College Chapel holds its annual Christmas carol service

On Sunday 3 December, New College Chapel held its annual carol service to a packed congregation. 

Queues of eager guests arrived early to enjoy an assortment of Christmas carols and readings. The Choir of New College delighted the congregation with beautiful choral music which included pieces from William Matthias (A babe is born), Joanna Marsh (O magnum mysterium) and H Praetorius. The congregation was invited to join in with renditions of O Little Town of Bethlehem and O Come O Ye Faithful. Readings from the Warden, Fellows, students, staff and an Old Member were interspersed amongst the carols in a service which lasted for just over an hour.

The service is available to watch on New College Choir's YouTube channel.
