Hallo everyone and welcome back to a whole New Year!

The performances at Christmas brought a lot of joy to all present around the SS. Great Britain. thank you so much for your spirit and enthusiasm!

As Covid numbers are up the rehearsals this term will initially be just one hour in length.

We will hopefully be working toward a short performance in All Saints Church in Clifton over the Easter holidays which will give us a nice but not overtaxing goal.

One new piece we will be working at with this in mind is this one which we will start looking at NEXT week.

It was written in 2018 for a Surrey based choir and newly arrived refugees by myself and Rebecca Askew and myself: it’s a humdinger.

Lyrics are here:
