We were delighted to be returning to the beautiful surroundings of St Mary's Church, Melton for our annual Christmas Concert this year.

Responding to requests for more Christmas songs, the programme included the new Carol of the Bells from Ukraine,  Sans day Carol from Cornwall, the Spanish Fum Fum, the moving German Stille Nacht , the gentle Cradle Hymn and a hoe down version of The Cherry Tree Carol. There was a medieval flavour with Gaudeaumus Hodie and Gaudete and Shepherds were well represented; watching their flocks and rising up!

New songs included Diya Duma, Janie Mama and Singing in the Rain.

The choir has been delighted to welcome a significant number of new members this term. Well done to Jane L, Alan Barbara, Gwyneth, Marj and Andrea for performing brilliantly in their first concert.

Thanks as always to our indefatigable leader, Liz Underhill. The Committee worked very hard to organise the concert, refreshments and raffle and thanks are due to Hazel and her family who gave invaluable support.
