A Miracle in Town
It was lovely for us to attend the Nativity Play and sing in the Carol Service in Cavan Parish Church this evening. Well done to the Shepherds, Innkeepers, Narrators, Singers, Musicians, Camels, Sheep, Angels, Kings, and Cowboys (yep!) of the Cavan No.1 School student cast, and to their teachers.
With our MD Eileen Tackney conductiong, and Sue King as accompanist, we sang with congregation their seasonal hymns - Once in Royal David's City (solo Brian McKeever, Bass), Joy to the World, Silent Night, O Come All Ye Faithful and Hark the Herald Angel Sing. We also sang one of our current carols, As The Bells Ring by Bob Chilcott, and the ever anticipated O Holy Night, with solos verses from to of our sopranos, Martina Lee Boyle and Paukine Brady.
Thank again to the Church committee who provide us with much appreciated refreshments in the school hall after the service.
We have taken part in this annual service every years since our foundation in 1984, and it marks the real start of Christmas for many of us.
