THE ORIGINAL FESTIVAL
The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols originated on Christmas Eve 1918. It was held at the King’s College–Cambridge as a more imaginative approach to worship. The service has become an annual tradition, now being broadcast worldwide via BBC Networks. Over the years, the music in the service has varied but the lessons and prayers have remained virtually unchanged.
