lessons and carols

The Christmas spirit is everywhere on campus these days. Our students are festively sporting Santa hats and Christmas sweaters, Secret Santa exchanges abound, and Thursday was my favorite chapel, our lovely Lessons and Carols service.  Faculty and students tell the story through readings from the gospels, our musicians perform, our choirs sing, and our students join in the carols.  It is a wonderfully beautiful hour. 
 
You can listen to one of my favorite songs, the annual conclusion to the service.  Christmas in Sarajevo is performed by our Wind Ensemble and directed by my colleague, Brian Beute.  I have included the link is to last year's performance, as this year's is not quite ready yet.  Every year is truly wonderful.  Pour yourself a cup of coffee, sit back, and enjoy a couple of lovely minutes.
