Christmas Eve Candlelight Service

December 24, 2019 | 10:00 pm
Place : Sanctuary

The Candle Light Service of Holy Communion will celebrate the mystery of the Word made Flesh.

The LOTI Church Choir, together with guest musicians will perform a pastoral mass by German composer Karl Kempter, the 19th century organist in the cathedral in Augsburg, Germany. In parts of Germany and Poland, it was popular for church organists to compose a more lyrical, melodic Christmas liturgy for Christmas Eve which focused on the arrival of the shepherds. Kempter’s simple style includes French horns to sound like shepherds in the nearby Alps. The service will close with the candle lit singing of Silent Night.
