O Come All Ye Faithful
Great Yarmouth Minster draws a crowd for traditional carols and readings
The traditional Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols was invented at the close of the First World War as a means to bring variety and pleasure to church worship at Christmas. The Creative Education Trust Great Yarmouth schools’ carol service in Great Yarmouth Minster drew over 800 parents, students and dignitaries to a centennial, adapted service of traditional carols and readings. Four choirs, two vocal soloists and an impressive number of instrumental players – including the Lynn Grove Academy Organ Scholar,Jamie Harrison, made a rich and memorable occasion.
