Turkey and cranberry sauce, pigs in blankets, mistletoe, chocolate yule logs – of all the elements and traditions that make up the spirit of Christmas, the singing of carols is maybe the most essential. The appeal seems universal and interminable, uniting children and adults in song. Even those too shy or embarrassed to sing will usually join in a carol at Christmas!
Our Christmas Concert this year will be on Saturday, 7 December and will be at Hampton in Arden Parish Church, concert starting at 6:30pm. We shall be singing a number of favourite carols and other Christmas-themed music most of which feature on Classic FM’s list of most-popular Christmas, choral music.
The choir will be joined by the fantastic Stephen Perrins on the organ.
We look forward to welcoming you and getting you in a festive mood!
