Carols in the Abbey
A beautiful service of lessons and carols was enjoyed by all at St Albans Abbey. The service started with the traditional Once In Royal David’s City with the first verse sung acapella by Emilie Geissmar-Wagstaff and Dinah Styles Vickery.
All ages were representing the music department with Martineau’s Choir performing lively versions of Personent Hodie and the Zither carol. The Boys' Choir performed a rousing acapella version of Gaudete and the Senior Choir sang a variety of carols from See Amid the Winter’s Snow to We Wish you a Merry Christmas.
A triumphant brass fanfare led the congregation into the final carol O Come All Ye Faithful concluding another fantastic service.
