Choir Sing Good King Wenceslaus on the Terrace

Choir Sing Good King Wenceslaus on the Terrace

There was huge disappointment all-round when news filtered in that the School Advent Carol Service was cancelled.

New Covid restrictions on Church Choirs were introduced the day before the Concert was due to take place in the Abbey Church.

So much effort and time had gone into preparing for the Concert and these new restrictions meant it was bitterly disappointing for the members of the Choir as well as for Choirmasters Fr. Columba and Br. Jarek,

However, Choir Captain John Walsh was not going to let the occasion go by without some sort of performance and so the video crew which was there for the church performance transferred their gear to the school terrace where the Choir sang Good King Wenceslaus.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the making of the video as you can see. We hope you enjoy it too. The YouTube link is below.

Plans are afoot for a big concert from the School Choir later in the year when the present restrictions will have been lifted. We will inform everyone when the time comes and we hope to have a packed church for this postponed Concert.....just like we have had for previous Advent Carol Services.
