A member of our women’s choir was expecting a baby – it was stillborn after almost 8 months gestation. The rest of us sang at the funeral. I know the baby is one of the Innocents, but it is a hard thing for the family.
Another concert last night of Christmas music. We sang outside wearing Santa hats and red felt capes. Here is my cape, getting its fur edging.
Then we gave a proper concert in the church with carols and Benjamin Britten’s Carols , accompanied by harp. I find it very difficult to sing with the harp – I seem to hear all the harmonics and have a hard time finding the note I’m supposed to be singing.
Another concert tonight.
