A Bucknell Candlelight Christmas
Tuesday, December 25 at 9:00 p.m.
A beloved campus tradition, modeled after Cambridge University's Christmas Eve Service of Lessons and Carols, returns to public television.
Rooke Chapel, set on one of Central Pennsylvania's most picturesque campuses at Bucknell University, makes for an evocative setting in "A Bucknell Candlelight Christmas."
The program opens with the traditional candlelight procession and recounts Christ's birth through Bible readings and anthems from the renowned undergraduate musical ensembles, the Rooke Chapel Choir and Rooke Chapel Ringers. This holiday special also highlights the uplifting power of congregational singing, with performances of sacred music and familiar carols such as "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "Go Tell it On the Mountain," "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," "Silent Night" and "Joy to the World."
