Wokingham Choral Society’s “Twas the night before Christmas”


                The choir was in great voice again last night to welcome in Christmas.  Four soloists responded well to the challenge of filling the Church with their single voices. The organisers  put on Christmas songs, carols and readings. I was pleased to be asked to read John Betjeman’s  “Christmas”  as part of the performance.

                  The choir sang traditional works like Adam lay abounden and the Sussex carol, as well as the more solemn Vespers.  Paddy Haycocks read the ever entertaining “Twas the night before Christmas”  with spirit and humour, whilst Linda Skilton gave a good performance of Pam Ayres down to eearth  “Goodwill to men”.

                  I love the combination of the written word and music. It made a great evening, with a full house.
