Princeton Theological Seminary is thrilled to welcome the public back to our annual Carols of Many Nations services in the Seminary Chapel. These services will feature seasonal readings in many of the languages represented in our community, including Arabic, French, Ogworok, Italian, Kachin, Malayalam, Mizo, Swedish, and Ukrainian.

The Chapel Choir will sing Christmas songs in many languages including German, Indonesian, Korean, Spanish, and Yoruba. In addition to some traditional carols, the congregation will join the choir in singing some less familiar fare such as the poignant “Hunger Carol” composed by Shirley Erena Murray (New Zealand) and I-to Loh (Taiwan) and the newly composed “Tres Guajiros” (Three Peasants) by Cuban American composer Tony Alonso. One choral highlight of the evening will be the Yoruba song “Betelehemu,” (Nigeria) led by student conductor Otis Byrd Jr. and accompanied by a resident ensemble of drummers. All three services will conclude with caroling on the Seminary quad.
