Although we won’t be starting on the more traditional carols until next month, can I suggest that any long standing altos, tenors and basses that have the 2017 carol booklets should look them out as this will save enormously on printing costs?

We now have three Christmas performances in close succession – see below. I hope you don’t feel that we are over doing things. The one on 1st December will include a number of featured carols, but those on 2nd and 3rd will just be well-known carols for everyone to join in. Should be fun!
Next week we will probably be looking at: Hosanna; Suo Gan; Things; Cherubim Song, Cherry Tree Carol, Breton Carol (Come, Descend) and Stille der Nacht
