Carols in Knightsbridge

The Chapel Choir was honoured to be invited to sing at The Rainbow Trust Carol Service, in Knightsbridge, for a second year, this time with Brass Works who were to play during the carols, and knew exactly what to expect when they arrived at the beautifully decorated St Paul's Church.

During the evening hosted by Mary Nightingale, ITV news presenter, the Choir sang a selection of Christmas songs, including the popular Colours of Christmas which can be heard straight after Farleigh's Carol Service in the Lower Courtyard - don't miss it!

We also listened to some very entertaining readings including a moving recitation of A A Milne's Sneezles by 11-year old Rory McConnachie whose family is supported by the Rainbow Trust, as well as a very humorous satire on the meaning of Christmas written and read by comedienne and actress, Maureen Lipman.

Many thanks to the indefatigable Mrs Minting for directing the Chapel Choir, to Brass Works (Charlie, Jack, Zara and Xanthe) and Mr Bolland who led them so well, to Mr Reeves for his expert accompaniment on the piano and the organ, and of course to the Chapel Choir who should be very proud of the way they conducted themselves during the day and the quality of their performance on the night. 

The Rainbow Trust raised an amazing £42,000 during the evening which will allow them to continue to provide respite care to many more families in 2018.
