Choir at Kirkoswald

Category : Choir , Christmas , Singing

The traditional Choir at Kirkoswald were joined by children from Kirkoswald school.
The choir, now under the umbrella of the East of Eden Mission Community sang a range of carols old and new under the direction of Jennifer Jackson. Helen Armstrong was the accompanist. A drum accompaniment by Ian Henderson added a great beat to the Carol ‘Somebody Build a Manger’. Rev Keith Speck gave a word in season to a packed congregation and the evening ended with a fun rendition of ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’! Thanks to all who helped in any way.
