Worship — Into the Light: A Journey with Jesus of Nazareth
The singers and instrumentalists of Old South Church under the direction of Minister of Music Harry Lyn Huff and Associate Choirmaster and Organist George Sargeant offer a new twist on the traditional Lessons and Carols format, blending hymns, anthems, instrumental meditations, and interactive Scripture readings
in a unique style of prayer and praise. Led by the 1921 E.M. Skinner organ, the Steinway concert grand piano, and the Willie Sordillo Jazz Trio, the services are enhanced by the Old South Choir and soloists, Old South Ringers (handbells), cellist Sam Ou, and flutist Ainsley Land with music by Duke Ellington, Calvin Hampton and Leon Roberts
