Carols by Candlelight

A message from Michael White:

Once again, Iwan and I would very much like to invite you to sing in the choir for the carol service which will be held on the evening of Sunday 20 December. Rehearsals for this will take place on Sundays 22 and 29 November, and 6 and 13 December at 4.30pm in the New Church. There will, of course, be a final rehearsal on the day of the carol service. Ideally, we would like you to attend all the rehearsals but please try to come to as many as you can remembering that the final rehearsal is compulsory.

We are holding an Advent carol service on the evening of Sunday 29 November but are intending to include mainly solo items so that the choir can concentrate on the carol service music.

We have not yet finalised the repertoire but will let you know as soon as we can.

Please could you let me know if you are able to sing in the choir at the carol service and also if you are planning to attend Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve because, depending on numbers, we would like the choir to sing at that service too if possible. It would also be useful if you could give me an indication of which rehearsals you are unable to attend.

So just to recap, dates are: Sunday 22 November, 4.30pm Rehearsal
Sunday 29 November, 4.30pm Rehearsal
Sunday 29 November, 7.00pm Advent Carol Service
Sunday 6 December, 4.30pm Rehearsal
Sunday 13 December, 4.30pm Rehearsal
Sunday 20 December, 4.30pm Rehearsal
Sunday 20 December, 7.00pm Carols by Candlelight
Thursday 24 December 11.30pm Midnight Mass

I look forward to hearing from you.
