31 JANUARY 2019

Dear All,

Not much to report except to say that last night’s singing was great (of course) and to remind you that next week will be a BADGE WEDNESDAY.  Please come sporting a name badge.  Don’t worry if you forget though – Julia will have some sticky labels.  As it will be the start of the Chinese New Year we will be singing May Your Cup Always Be Full and The Boar’s Head Carol (it is going to be Year of the Pig after all and I think it is probably the only pig song in our repertoire), our own bespoke version of Vive La Compagnie, continuing work on Isn’t She Lovely and Time After Time, and, time permitting, singing Bela Mama, Give Me Wings and the Ghanaian Kyrie as well.
