Tina managed to start us singing soon after 7.30pm with a rousing Fathom The Bowl before looking at another fifteen songs from our winter season songs together with several harmonies. Poor Froze Out Gardeners, Angel Gabriel, The Coppers’ Christmas Song, Shepherd of The Downs, The Fields Lie Silent Now, Searching For Lambs, Where Stormy Winds Do Blow and also our very own Caburn Hill which Dawn had climbed in the morning and new boy, Nick, that afternoon. After a break for refills and chat, we resumed with On Sussex Hills, The Seasons Turn, The Falmer Carol, “Pentonville”, Sussex Wedding Song, finishing with Pleasant And Delightful and Thousands Or More.
Several of us will be singing at the Brunswick, West Hove & Portslade U3A meeting on Wednesday 21st November at Ralli Hall from 2.30pm which Emily has kindly agreed to lead and we hope some of the Worthing group will be joining us.
Next month, the Napier Quire start their weekly rehearsals for the Brighton Pub Carols so Tina has arranged to move our SDFS practice nights to Wednesday 21st November, 7.30pm start, and Wednesday 19th December; that is the day after we would have been meeting. So it looks as if 21st November is a day/night to remember!
