It’s December, advent calendars are on the wall and being prematurely raided (in my house, anyway). And it’s just ten days until the event of month: the Spectator’s carol concert with the amazing choir of St Bride’s. It’s a stunning church but quite a small one: we only have 200 tickets and most have been sold. But there are still a few left, which you can buy online.

It’s in aid of Cancer Research UK and a warm invitation is extended to any Coffee Housers who’d like to come and join us. The evening is our own (condensed) lessons and carols – the lessons being read by our own saints: Rod Liddle, Jeremy Clarke Melissa Kite and others. And the music: well, here’s a sample. Of the choir’s arrangement of Little Town of Bethlehem:-

 

They also do a genius arrangement of the 12 Days of Christmas. Here’s the 7th day:-

We have readers at this event who come every year, and a lot who say they’d have come before if we did a better job of explaining what a magical evening it is. I hope the music sample gives a clue. For subscribers, the tickets are £30 – not a giveaway price to be sure, but it’s a fundraiser for Cancer Research UK.
