All Saints Church Great Barford - Carol Service - 3rd December 2016
As the audience assembled the Church was visited by a bat fluttering about high in the church. It must have been disturbed by the noise from below. Eventually it either found it's way outside or settled down to enjoy the concert with the rest of the audience.
The first half of the Concert:-
Once in Royal David's City
Carol of the bells
Mary's Boy Child
Unto us a son is born
Hannah and I
O little town of Bethlehem
The interval was particularly special because Choir members had been asked to provide mince pies for the enjoyment of the audience and choir. There was a plentiful supply and a wide variety as most were hand made.
It was also decided that the raffle would be drawn in the interval. Each Choir member had brought a raffle prize. This meant that there was a plentiful supply of prizes
The second half of the Concert:-
In the Bleak mid winter. Verse 1 solo
Hark the Herald Angels Sing
O holy night
O come all the faithful omit verse 4
We wish you a Merry Christmas.
The Choir sings In The Bleak Midwinter with a solo by Hannah Bavington.
