The occasion for Teignmouth Sings’ last concert of 2013 was the Teignmouth United Reformed Church’s annual carol concert. The church was full, the crib beautifully prepared, the choir more or less at full strength, and certainly in good voice.
Our contributions were fitted around carols sung by the congregation and seasonal Advent readings. ‘While Shepherds watched.. ’(Lyngham), ‘Torches’ and ‘Dona Nobis Pacem’ sung unaccompanied were followed by ‘Angels’. Finally, Jeff Hocking’s ‘Songs of Christmas’ arrangement brought the service to a good humoured and festive close.
Mulled wine and mince pies were enjoyed afterwards, and we had some lovely spontaneous comments about how good the Choir’s singing was, how enjoyable the choir’s contribution to the service had been, and what a high standard the Choir had.
