Christmas Day Choral Eucharist


See separate Order of Service

Setting: 

Missa Sanctis Joannis de Deo (Joseph Haydn)

Anthem

I saw three ships (arr. Stuart Nicholson)

Away in a manger (arr. Philip Moore)

A Choral Eucharist is the same as a said Eucharist, except with the addition of glorious organ music and choral pieces, hymns in which the congregation joins the singing, and a homily or sermon. This usually takes place on Sunday mornings and at other times on special festival days.

The Choral Eucharist is almost always located in the nave; the service lasts for an hour or more, depending on the choice of music and other elements of the service.
