Choir carol concert

Last night, on a cold and still slightly snowy night, I was privileged to be able to attend the carol concert that was held in Christ church. The choir was made up of 8 local schools, Thundridge, Hertingfordbury, Stapleford, Widford, Little Munden, St.John the Baptist, Tower and of course Christ Church.
This truly talented collection of choirs joined forces to open and close the service with Baby in a Manger and New Born Baby and also treated us to two different versions of Away in a Manger.
We were fortunate to be the first school to sing and after our rendition of The Gift, it was obvious the bar had been set very high. Well done to Mrs Vaughan and each and every member of the choir, it was a delightful rendition and every note was spot on. Just beautiful.
This was quickly followed by readings and the choirs of each of the other seven schools, who between them covered a broad spectrum of music. I was extremely proud to be sat with our choir, but do have to be honest and say that the largest round of applause went to Tower for their inspired contribution "Glory Rap".

It was certainly a popular event and I am sure those of you who were there will be in agreement due to the fact so many had to stand. Hopefully this did not take away from your enjoyment and this has started the Christmas season off in a truly festive way.
