God is with us!

The Cappella Singers' Christmas Concert in
Minchinhampton
Parish Church

Friday 17 December 2010

This concert consisted of mostly sacred, seasonal music from Parry, Naylor, Schumann, Wolf, Elgar and others, plus organ pieces played by Stephen Power. bearing in mind the awful weather and the two other concerts in the area that night, we were pleased to see a smaller-than-usual, but enthusiastic audience.
