Service of Readings and Carols




 Sunday, December 21st 2003, 4.00pm.
Welcome to Christ Church, New Mill, and especially to this
celebration of the Nativity of our Lord in words and music.
You are invited to stand and join in the items marked
“HYMN”, and sit or kneel as appropriate for the other
items. We hope you enjoy the service.
What is a carol? The English carol was once a dance. In fact the word
“carol” is derived from the Greek word choros meaning dance, and
the early English carols have parallels with the French carole—a
dance-song.

Although such dance-songs were associated with pagan festivals, be-
cause of their popularity the fourteenth century Franciscan Friars be-
gan to write sacred texts to be sung to this dance music, as a means of
propagating the Gospel. After 1400, the association with dancing
waned, and the emphasis on song grew.

Our first choral carol today, Tomorrow shall be my dancing day, is an
example of an early carol which refers to the tradition of dancing. In
this arrangement, only the Christmas verses are used; the original told
the story of Jesus’ life through to his death and resurrection in eleven
verses.

The readings this year are the traditional texts, but we are using the
New English Translation of the bible. This is a recent attempt to trans-
late from the original languages into modern idiomatic English, by a
team of scholars. The text is available on the internet (it’s the NET bi-
ble, www.netbible.org), with numerous footnotes and explanations of
the translation. Moreover, the translators are willing to review and
re-translate if they receive informed comment on its correctness. In
other words, this should be an authoritative translation. Listen care-
fully: what’s your opinion on the translation?
The service starts with the dimming of the lights.
