Carols by Candlelight – Broomhill Community Church

In the New Year the branch will be changing venue to the Broomhill Community Church, and having had one practice session in the new surroundings, we were invited to take part in their Carol service. Not all of the members were available, but ten players participated, and we were very warmly welcomed by the church for this special event. We played a mini round the world programme, starting off with the very beautiful Appalachian Christmas Lullaby arranged by Tom Johnston, and included a contra in the bass. For the rest of our short programme we chose Alyson Lewin’s arrangement of Noél nouvelet and Il est neé, and finished with Stille Nacht played as an eight-foot consort. Our performance was very well received, and as usual, the larger recorders inparticularly brought much interest.
