On Sunday I met up with my singing friends, Elizabeth, Ann and Frank. We meet once a month to sing classical Indian raga, sounds very esoteric I know, and, apart from one, we don’t do it very well but we have lots of fun.
As it was Christmas we decided to bring carols instead. We sang Away in a Manger in Sa Re Ga (the Sanskrit version of the octave), the Coventry Carol, and a carol which I made up to the love theme from the film Les Parapluies de Cherbourg. I fell in love with this song when I heard it recently. Here is my carol. Blank — Blank
I was hoping to bring it up here, but technology has defeated me. Never mind. I will try and reproduce it elsewhere!
I just wanted to get something out before Christmas.
We had a lovely Christmas meal: a toast with Prosecco first, then a starter of Tuna Waldorf salad, followed by a tagine with chicken and apricots, ending with a delicious Stollen cake made by Frank, and finally home made chocolate fudge and coffee.
Full up with good food and good cheer Frank gave us his rendition of “Albert and the Lion.”
It was a wonderful prelude to Christmas.
Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year!
