Carols by Candlelight

On Monday of this week we held our Festival on Nine Lessons and Carols. I am sure you will agree that it was a very beautiful service and the choir sang so well not only their own choir pieces but also the congregational carols as well. Among the well known carols the choir sang the following pieces:
The O Antiphon for 22nd Day of December (Plainsong)
Adam lay y bounden
Out of your sleep by Sir Richard Rodney Bennett
Benedicamus Domino by Paul-Isaac Franks.
This piece of music had its premiere at St Marie's.
Away in a manger - Trad French melody, arr. Jacques
The Coventry Carol
O Holy Night
