Moon, Carol Singing and Snow Dog!

20 Dec

1   The moon this morning, just at the start of dawn, was beautiful and if you look carefully, you can see the pink-tinged vapour trail of a plane as it catches the colour from the sunrise.

2   Here I offer you up a Carol Concert!  These are some videos of our concert on Wednesday in Truro Cathedral, with many thanks to T and D. We start with a beautiful piece May This Room.  Click on any red link to hear Claire Ingleheart’s three choirs singing in the Cathedral.
The Redruth Wassail follows, then Silent Night,  Star of Bethlehem, Dona Nobis and finishing with Rolling Downwards.
I hope you enjoy these carols. We love singing them!

3   I have finished the Snow Dog! He has certainly been a challenge and a labour of love and I love him to bits.  I hope Grand Baby T does too!  For those of you able to get UK TV, the animation will be on Channel 4 at 7.30 on Christmas Eve.

    Our Buckland community choir also sing Dona Nobis, but we only have about 20 in our choir so not as good a sound as yours in Truro Catherdral, really lovely.
    Also I love the Snow Dog , so glad you finished him
    Happy Christmas

      I didn’t make them! I was just singing. A friend makes them for the choirs and we all thank her greatly! 🙂
