It was with great pleasure we returned to sing for the ladies of Starbeck on the 11
th December after their Christmas Dinner evening. The hall at St Andrews church provided a lovely setting for some festive spirit and singing. Along with some barbershop classics and some more modern arrangements, we spanned the 20th Century with some Christmas songs influenced by some of the major events. Silent Night from WW1, Judy Garland’s ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ from WW2 and, of course, the American explosion of the commercial Christmas for kids in the 1950’s, with a rendition of Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer. Much merriment was had by all and the Chorus was treated to lashings of mince pies, cakes and tea, lavished upon them by the lovely ladies of the YCWA!
