Lessons & Carols 2018
Enjoy photos and video from the annual NCS and St. Albans Festival of Lessons and Carols in Washington National Cathedral. The service, dating to the late 19th century, features readings from the New Testament centered around the birth and life of Jesus. Each reading is followed by prayers and musical and artistic offerings by choirs, instrumental groups, and dancers. In all, more than 600 students from each school perform each year. 
Located in Washington D.C.,  St. Albans School is a private, all boys day and boarding school. For more than a century, St. Albans has offered a distinctive educational experience for young men in grades 4 through 12. While our students reach exceptional academic goals and exhibit first-rate athletic and artistic achievements, as an Episcopal school we place equal emphasis upon moral and spiritual education.
