Covid Carols

Open air carol singing was enjoyed by a good group singing at venues around the village and finishing at the beautiful village Christmas tree. It reaffirmed the sheer pleasure of harmonising together. It also brought Christmas cheer to those who heard us sing.

That was in the days of Tier 2. Unfortunately, only virtual singing is possible under the current Tier 4 regulations.

Winter term

The 2019 winter and Christmas season was very successful and very enjoyable for the choir.  The centrepiece of our autumn / winter concert was “Gloria” by John Rutter which provided a stirring finale to a very fine programme of music and songs.  We had the fantastic support of  a brilliant brass section, excellent percussionists and a superb organist.  A large audience enjoyed a fine performance in the lovely St James church.

Many village residents joined in singing carols and Christmas songs in what is always a fun evening in the local pub.  Then Christmas proper began with the choir supporting the service of carols and readings in the church.  This is a very important and very fulfilling part of our calendar and the church was full as usual.
