Each year I work with the wonderful Somerset Voices choir (a kind of scratch choral society) to plan and conduct the music for the Sing for Somerset carol service in Wells Cathedral.
The service, which this year takes place on Saturday 15th December, benefits the work of the Somerset Community Foundation (you read all about their work across the county over on their website) and lots of people see it as the start of Christmas. There’s always a mixture of choral music for choir and congregation, as well as seasonal readings and prayers.
This year I’m introducing a carol that will be new to most of the choir – Mack Wilberg’s arrangement of Still, still, still. We’re lucky to work in partnership with the Mid Somerset Orchestra , so the video below will give you an idea of what to expect on the night – strings and all!
Find out more about joining the choir or just sit back and listen to the music, and maybe put the date in your diary for this year’s service (Saturday 15th December 2018, 7pm, Wells Cathedral).
