|For our last concert of the decade, a small section of the choir returned to Stoneleigh Abbey to perform our third annual Christmas concert in the Family Chapel under the "stick" of Matthew Sandy. Each concert is a unique occasion with a new theme every year and this time we reflected the history of the Abbey since its foundation in the 12th century through music and words. Although the audience is necessarily small, seating is limited, they were very receptive and joined in enthusiastically. Particularly in the second half when everyone was reinforced with mulled wine and mince pies. Some of the music was quite challenging and stretched our sight reading skills but hopefully we can add some new favourites to our regular repertoire.
