On Monday 10th December we held our annual Christmas Carol Service at Rochester Cathedral. This is always a favourite of all of us here at RGS as it puts us all in a festive spirit and this this year didn’t let us down! The service started with ‘Once in Royal David’s City’ with the solo sung by Yasmin Ahmed before being joined by the choirs and then the congregation. After a welcome from The Revered Matthew Rushton we had a mixture of traditional carols accompanied by the Symphony Orchestra, readings by students and staff and some musical items. Highlights included the RGS Symphony Orchestras rendition of the ‘Waltz of the Flowers’ from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, Senior Gospel Choir singing ‘The Night that Christ was Born’ and RGS Chamber Orchestra who performed Leroy Andersons ‘Sleigh Ride’. As always NChant’s performances of ‘In the First Light’, ‘The Coventry Carol’ and ‘Tell Me Tell Me‘ were well received! Overall it was an excellent evening of Traditional carol singing, readings and music enjoyed by all in the beautiful setting of the Cathedral.
