A Community Carol Service

On Monday night, the University of London Church Choir (my choir) sang at the St. Anne's Community Christmas Carol Service in Soho, London. This year, they decided to move the service out in the community and hold it at Kingly Court on Carnaby Street. (Photo'll notice both the distinct lack of church building as well as the somewhat absent roof. There was a tent-like covering that night, but we were still basically singing a shopping mall.) In addition to our choir, the choir from Soho Parish School sang as well. The Lord Mayor of Westminster also spoke, as did other community members. Oh, and there was a raffle!

The St. Anne's website says this:

11th December at 7.00pm
“Light in Darkness”

The Carol Service of the House of St Barnabas-in-Soho
A traditional carol service in the beautiful surroundings of an Oxford Movement


Monday 18th December (in Kingly Court at 7.00pm)
“Here we come a wassailing”

A Community Carol Concert for Soho
With Choirs from Soho Parish School and the London University
Church, Readers and performers from the Soho business and residential communities
Soloist Paul Martyn-West.
At this concert there will be a collection and raffle (Santa’s Sack) for the Bryan Burrough Memorial Appeal - a New Hall For Soho Parish School
After the concert mulled wine and mince pies will be served in Kingly Court

(We actually sang at both of these services - the other is mentioned below.)
