Over the last few weeks I've attended quite a few carol services, but none of them had a proper church choir, with choir boys in. Thankfully our English Cathedrals still have their own choirs, and now also have girl choristers.
One of the most loved traditional Christmas festivals is the 'Nine lessons and Carols' which is broadcast every Christmas Eve from Kings College Cambridge and in candlight it is truly a delightful service.
The title for this post comes from the carol "The holly and the Ivy" the chorus ends with these two lines "The playing of the merry organ, Sweet singing in the choir."
Well I'm signing off until after Christmas as tomorrow is going to be one of the busiest times of the year for church services so I wish you......................
A HAPPY AND BLESSED CHRISTMAS
