More Information

The Lessons and Carols service was the brainchild of King’s College dean Eric Milner-White, who wanted a service that could unite and inspire people after the horrors of the First World War.

In this keynote address by John Rutter, you’ll hear about the origins of the service and its place in contemporary society.

Rutter is known in the music community as ‘Mr Carols’, having written an enormous amount of Christmas carols over more than forty years. He has also edited multiple editions of the authoritative source for Christmas music across British churches, Carols for Choirs, with Sir David Willcocks, the famed Director of Music of King’s College Cambridge.
