Last week the BlueBelles were invited to sing at a Wedding in Stanton Fitzwarren at the Stanton Manor Hotel. Because the wedding was near Christmas (13 December) we had been asked to sing a number of Christmas Carols and other festive songs whilst the guests had coffee after the Wedding Breakfast.
Some of the music the BlueBelles sang included:
Once in Royal David’s City
Hark the Herald Angels Sing
Past Three O Clock
Up Good Christian Folk
Oh little town of Bethlehem
The Colours of Christmas
Hail Blessed Virgin Mary
Ding Dong Merrily on High
Tomorrow Shall Be my Dancing Day
The Infant King
The vast majority of the songs were unaccompanied, although we did include a couple of songs which needed accompaniment.
After the singing, in the best traditions of the choir, we all retired to the hotel bar to share a bottle or two of wine! Whilst we were there I persuaded the official photographer to take a picture of the girls all dressed in their finery!
