Lessons & Carols 2020

Home » News » Lessons & Carols 2020

Sadly, Covid restrictions have precluded St Mary's Church in Haddenham offering its Carols by Candlelight service this year. It would have taken place this Sunday evening, 20th December.

As a means of reaching out to the community, members of the church, together with Witchert Chorale, have produced a Service of Lessons & Carols captured on video.

The service includes a number of traditional carols as well as three pieces of music to be listened to and enjoyed as the choir sing to us.

If you would like to join in with the carols, please click on the PDF on this page and download the words.

It would be lovely to think that there is a large group of Haddenham residents joining in a collective Service for Christmas, especially as there was no village carol service this year.

The service was broadcast on Red Kite Radio on Sunday evening 20th December. If you missed that, the video is available on Youtube, so you can enjoy the service anytime convenient to you and your family during the run-up to Christmas.

The video link is here.

The church members would like to extend their appreciation to Witchert Chorale, especially given the challenging circumstances in which they were required to sing — two metres apart from one another in both dimensions. This meant that listening carefully to one another, to create the harmonies, was much more difficult than would otherwise have been the case.

They did a fine job, nonetheless.

We hope you enjoy the recorded service, which last approximately 45 minutes.
