Carol Service at Romsey Abbey 2015

184 singers in the combined choirs led the singing in the Carol Service at Romsey Abbey. The choirs also sang a varied programme of carols ranging from the traditional Bethlehem Down by Peter Warlock to John Tavener’s Christmas Round and also included a UK premiere of Arvo Part’s delightful Lullaby. The chamber orchestra accompanied the carols and the large congregation sang with great gusto. Over £1,500 was collected in a retiring collection for local charities.
