For the forth year running the Choir have sung at Ely Cathedral for their annual Charity Carol Service with proceeds to Royal Papworth Hospital. Our song this year was a traditional German Carol ‘In Winter’ by Victor C Johnson, a very pretty Carol and one we all enjoyed singing. We would like to thank Thania, a good friend of our musical director Jan, who kindly conducted the choir in Jan’s absence, also Penny our pianist. The Choir arrived early to enjoy a light lunch in the Almonry Tea Room before heading up to the Lady Chapel for a quick rehearsal. After the Service mince pies and mulled wine were served to the congregation by some of our choir members.
On Saturday 22nd of December we sang at Elsworth Trinity Church Carol Service. Our choice of songs were ‘In Winter’ by Victor C Johnson, ‘Somewhere in My Memory’ by Leslie Bricusse and John Williams, ‘Starlight’ by Giles Swayne and we finished with a lighthearted rendition of ‘Rudolph The Red=Nosed Reindeer’. Once again the Mulled Wine and Mince Pies were served and a very social time was enjoyed by all.
