We wish you a merry Christmas!

The weather outside on Saturday night was dreadful but indoors the singing by both choirs was lovely and we were warmed by wine and mince pies!

The audience enjoyed a festive mix of carols, readings from Dickens' A Christmas Carol, the slow movement of Bach's double violin concerto and Christmas music including Adam Lay Ybounden (Warlock) and Sussex Carol.

And Quem pastores laudavere and the Australian carol The Silver Stars were performed by St Anne's School choir with St Cecilia Chorus. A lovely way to wish you all a very happy Christmas!

Our first event of 2019 is a Come and Sing Workshop on Saturday 26 January - book a place now!
