Raks's Review

I went to this tonight - It was OUTSTANDING and I loved it.

I booked to go to this because I could not attend either of the All Souls Christmas concerts (clashing engagements). It was a mix of carols, Christmas songs and Christmas music. It was great to hear a full orchestra again and the audience got to join in with many of the carols. And where it had the edge over the All Souls concerts that I missed, was that it was packed to the brim with traditional carols and songs. I am a sucker for tradition! Having been this year, I would recommend it and I will be there next year.

I have also now decided on the carol I will be running on the blog on Christmas day - it is one of the most traditional that there is and featured in just about every Carol concert that I have ever attended!
