BELFAST — The Penobscot Bay Singers present their latest program for the 2021 season, a Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols.

In this program, the story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus are told in short lessons from Genesis, the prophetic books, and the Gospels, interspersed with the singing of Christmas Carols, hymns, and choral selections.

This program will last around one hour, and subtitles are provided to follow along. It can be viewed on Youtube here, or Vimeo here.

With this virtual program, guest readers, including pastors from several local area churches and members of the choir, retell familiar lessons in the settings of various church sanctuaries. The choir members present appropriate choral selections to each lesson in small groups and as solo performers.
