The Rooke Chapel Ringers were organized in 1983 under the direction of William A. Payn, director of choral studies. The 15-member choir represents every major field of study at Bucknell. The choir plays regularly for Protestant worship services on campus and participates in the traditional ringing-in-of-Christmas at Candlelight services in Rooke Chapel each December. This popular performance, taped and repeatedly televised by PBS for national distribution, was nominated for an Emmy in 1996 and 2004. A Christmas compact disc, which also includes the Rooke Chapel Choir, was released by Albany Records in November 1995.
