DAVENPORT, Iowa—On Saturday, Dec. 6, St. Ambrose University will present a sacred concert in the “Lessons and Carols” tradition. An Ambrosian Christmas will take place at 7 p.m. in Christ the King Chapel and will feature the University Chorale and Chamber Singers. The free public performance will also feature a premiere of a new composition by William Campbell, associate professor and chair of the Music Department, based on a hymn attributed to Saint Ambrose.

Readings interspersed with carols and hymns — and audience participation — will comprise an hour-long narration of the Biblical story spanning from Genesis to the birth of Jesus to the mystery of the incarnation.

“Whether you are looking for a spiritual experience, or simply wanting to enjoy a beautiful performance, An Ambrosian Christmas will not disappoint,” said Campbell.
