Santa Claus came to Town!

Last night the choir gave their annual Carols for All! before a large and enthusiastic audience at St Matthew's Church. With vibrant favourites from John Gardner (The Holly and the Ivy and Tomorrow shall be my dancing day), the late Christopher Tambling (The Charlestone Carol), and our former MD Malcolm Tyler (Mary had a baby), two mega-Cantatas by Cecilia McDowall (A Winter's Night and Christus natus est), and a number of audience carols, you would think it was complete ... but ... we were delighted to be joined again by the Northampton High School Junior School Choir, and for the first time (at Christmas) by the Stanwick Handbell Ringers.

Christmas Jumpers for Family Carol Singalong

AND ... we gave another concert on the same day! At the conclusion of their afternoon rehearsal, the choir donned their Christmas jumpers and welcomed a large number of children, with parents, carers, and grandparents, for our first, hour-long, Family Carol Singalong! Compered and accompanied on the piano by our MD we sang a medley of popular Christmas songs - and Santa Claus did come to Town, giving presents to those children in the audience with the best Christmas jumpers! Our Christmas elf, Ivan, also accompanied the choir in solo numbers, as well as showing off his footwork in Thomas Trotter's organ arrangement of Leroy Anderson's Sleigh Ride! So popular was it that he reprised it again in the evening concert.
