Living Advent Day 14: Choir of Angels sing

FOUR girls provided a heart-warming interlude during a performance by the Henley Choral Society on night 14 of this year's Henley Living Advent Calendar

FOUR girls provided a heart-warming interlude during a performance by the Henley Choral Society on night 14 of this year's Henley Living Advent Calendar.

Libby Clark, five, Maggie Meredith, seven, Martha Dickson, seven, and her sister Ella, 10, answered a call from conductor Wendy Hawkins asking for help.


The girls stood in a line in front of the audience of about 60 at the Bull on Bell Street pub on Monday night before singing two verses of the carol Away in a Manger.

Earlier, the choir, which numbered about 40 men and women with the majority of whom wearing festive hats, entered the pub's courtyard from the rear before opening number of Ding Dong Merrily on High.

Several songs followed, including Once in Royal David's City and Jesus Christ the Apple Tree before closing with a rousing rendition of We Wish you a Merry Christmas.

There was a collection and raffle on behalf of the Henley Festival Trust which was raising money for new musical instruments for children at Camp Mowhawk in Wargrave.

Tonight's performance will take place at The Henley College.

For a full round-up of this week's events, pick up a copy of the Henley Standard, out on Friday.
