The St. Thomas More Church Adult Choir will present its annual Festival of Lessons and Carols Concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 22, at the church, 374 Middlesex Road, Darien.

Joining with the choir will be soloists Terry Eldh, Joan Carlo, Brooke Larimer, David Guzman and Matthew Thomas. Organ and instruments will accompany, under the direction of Galen Tate.

Lessons and Carols, created in 1880 by the bishop of Truro in Cornwall, England, is based upon an order of nine Scripture readings that recount the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah and the birth of Jesus. Readings are taken from Genesis, the prophetic books and the Gospels, interspersed with beautiful sacred music.

Works by Bach, David Willcocks, Kurt Bestor and Amy Grant are planned, in combination with familiar carol singing by all.

Admission is free. For information, call 203-655-3303.
