Come and Sing : The Carols of John Rutter Day

Come and Sing The Carols of John Rutter Day

A most enjoyable day's singing took place on 28 November in the comfort of Northampton High School. Lee Dunleavy, the Choir's Musical Director, aided and abetted by Charlie Hubbard, the Travis Organ Scholar at All Saints' Church, Northampton, took a 'Come and Sing the Carols of John Rutter' Day. John Rutter is known for his unique gift for the Christmas carol and we sang a number of them from the earliest ones that he wrote, the Nativity Carol and the Shepherds Pipe Carol to his most recent one The Colours of Christmas. We also sang several beautiful carols composed by Dan Forrest, an American whose carols are included on the Northampton Bach Choir's latest CD recording Be Merry!

Around 80 people sang with gusto learning carols familiar and new whilst being entertained by Lee's stories. There was much amusement as he played a piano duet with Charlie while perched, knees-to-chin, on on a child's classroom chair. As one participant put it 'It was a great day and perfect for getting in a Christmas mood!'
