Had a great night last night singing at Animals in Distress for their Christmas Giving Evening. This is our third year singing there – it’s really great, so welcoming (and lots of cake.)

We sang quite a few songs from our Christmas repertoire – including our new silly song. It actually sounds good as a round. One of our favourites is Oh Holy Night – a really beautiful melody, with lots of lovely harmonies. Singing carols which makes it really feel like Christmas.

We’ve started going through our Christmas repertoire, ready for our Christmas Singouts. We’re learning a new one – African Noel. It’s lots of fun, lots of rhythm, and not too many words to learn! The rhythms do get a bit complicated in the middle, but we’re getting there.

We also sang a new Christmassy warm-up song about one mince-pie, two mince-pies and fairy lights going pop. Nice and simple!

10th November: Tonight was a waxing moon, a little over half-full, and Torre Abbey was glowing with multi-coloured lights and crowded with people - and their dogs – for the Eyeview Wavelength festival, an open-air celebration of light and sound and creativity. A perfect night for us to sing in the Spanish Barn.

With Chris, our Musical Director, on a sabbatical, we had Isobel to direct us. We had a lot of discussion beforehand about which songs to choose for our short set. We wanted to start with a boost, so Deke Shannon’s arrangement of Best Day of My Life won the vote. Then a couple of Beatles classics – In My Life and Can’t Buy Me Love.

The choice of the last one was obvious, in keeping with the ‘moon’ theme of the night – Moon River. We love it, and it’s always a crowd-pleaser.
