THE HOLY Trinity Augmented Choir is leading two musically significant services in the run up to Christmas.
The first by the group, which sings at Holy Trinity Church, Link Top, Malvern, is a service of Lessons and Carols at 6.30pm on Sunday, December 12 with mulled wine and mince pies being served beforehand from 5.45pm.
A common theme in the music is the importance of Bethlehem at the centre of the Christmas Story.
The second service is the more traditional Nine Lessons and Carols at 10.30am on the following Sunday, December 19 with refreshments served after the service.
The choir attracts singers from across the county and only recently resumed performing in public.
Following the disruption of three lockdowns, the choir has seen many old faces return as well as attracting new singers from Malvern and beyond.
Charles Pavey, organist and choirmaster at Holy Trinity, Malvern, said: “With an age range of about 60 years, the choir has a wealth of experience from many long-standing singers as well as a number of new singers who have brought other musical influences with them.
“The carol services will be two contrasting occasions, creating an atmosphere of both peace and excitement during the build-up to Christmas itself.”
