On Thursday 21st December the choir closed its seasonal Christmas programme by making its way to the Two Rivers Hotel for the first time to present the regulars and diners with a selection of Christmas Carols and Songs.
Conducted by Shirley Anne James and accompanied by John Nicholson the choir included favourites such as ‘Joy to the World’, ‘Casatschok’, the Johnny Mathis favourite ‘When a Child is Born, ‘God Rest You Merry Gentlemen’, ‘Silver Bells’, Bing Crosby’s ‘White Christmas’ ‘Little Drummer Boy’ and ‘A Christmas Medley’ which included Jingle Bells as a finale. The patrons were invited to join in to sing alongside the choir with carols ‘Away in a Manger’, ‘O Come all ye faithful’ and ‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing’.
This was the first time the choir had visited the hotel and hopes to be invited again next year. The carol singing was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone present.
In 2024, as well as its popular Annual and local concerts the choir will be appearing in the Festival of Massed Voices at the Royal Albert Hall on April 27th and returning to St Andrews Church in Harrow in May after an absence of ten years.
Meanwhile Caldicot Male Voice Choir wishes you all a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. Nadolig llawen a blwyddyn newydd dda.
The Choir will return to practice on January 8th.
