Christmas well and truly started last night with the double bill annual Lord Mayor’s Carol concerts in conjunction with the Rothwell Temperance Band. Everybody enjoyed a good sing along with two full houses. The Phil premiered two new carols, both written for the choir. The Dawn Carol, an arrangement of Walter de la Mare’s poem by Richard Bates, and Lirum Lirun, written and arranged by our new chorus master Richard Wilberforce. The choir will reconvene on the 2nd January, the day after Richard gets married. We wish him all the best on his special day.
