We sample a few today.
But our main focus is St Paul’s cathedral where there is a carol service called “9 lessons and carols”. We arrive early to listed to the organ music for nearly half an hour. We had popped in earlier in the week and heard them rehearse on the organ. It’s magnificent cadences soar and ring through the massive body of the building. The choir are delightful and sing the original German words of Silent Night, a French carol I have never heard before and Ave Maria by Shubert in addition to our own rendering of traditional carols.
It was really a lovey serviceand the music was serene.
