In preparation for the annual Lessons & Carols service at Brick Church, Minister of Music Dr. Raymond Nagem interviewed composer Jonathan Woody. Woody will preview his latest composition, 'Magnificat,' and discusses some of his influences and themes in the work.
Brick Church’s Lessons & Carols is modeled on the famous service that has been sung at King’s College, Cambridge, since 1918. By flickering candlelight, we proclaim the message of Christmas through readings, carols, and anthems, and we share the good news of light amid the winter’s darkness. This year’s service will feature the world premiere of a new Magnificat by New York composer Jonathan Woody. Attendance for this year’s Lessons & Carols is free and open to the public.
