Summer is Over

This week was the first rehearsal for our Christmas season, singing carols in a warm September’s evening. It marks the end of our summer ‘off’, although a summer break for this Choir has not happened for many years. This summer we’ve had two weddings, a recital to feature in, and given the only performance at the cancelled Classic Isle event. That’s meant rehearsals have continued through the holidays. Next summer will be as busy, with the next tour to France in the planning for 2017.

So a big welcome to our new members, and here’s to a great Christmas 2016 season.

Polesden Lacey Trip

Tomorrow the Choir is travelling over to the mainland to Polesden Lacey to sing at their Christmas event. We went last year, and had a great day there, singing, drinking some mulled cider and then having a trip to Guildford.

In a demonstration of the Choir’s enormous repertoire, almost all of the songs we’ll be singing tomorrow will not be featuring at our Cheese and Crackers concert. Instead, our list for tomorrow contains more traditional songs. Here is our plan:

  1. Ding Dong Merrily on High
  2. Why Not Buy An Extra Present
  3. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
  4. O Little Town of Bethlehem
  5. Angels’ Carol
  6. O Come All Ye Faithful
  7. Hark The Herald Angels Sing
  8. Away In a Manger
  9. In the Bleak Midwinter
  10. Silent Night
  11. Jingle Bells
  12. Good King Wenceslas
  13. Twelve Days of Christmas
  14. Little Donkey
  15. Torches
  16. Once In Royal David’s City
  17. Winter Wonderland
  18. O Holy Night
  19. When a Child is Born
  20. Da Virgin Mary
  21. Do you hear what I hear?
  22. A Winter’s Tale
  23. Mistletoe and Wine

If you are in the Surrey area, then visit Polesden and hear the Choir at 11:00 and 12:30 tomorrow.
