Tuesday 18 December
CATHEDRAL CAROL SING-IN
12.45pm; Southwark Cathedral
The Dean, the Very Rev Colin Slee leads a carol service
with a difference. Working within an informal framework
the Dean invites the congregation to sing all their
favourite carols and read the traditional lessons.
Musical accompaniment is provided by the Tudor Rose
Brass Quintet, the Thursday Singers and the Director of
Music, Peter Wright. There is a retiring collection for
the charity, CRISIS. "The Carol Sing-in seems to be
remarkably popular with workers just before Christmas,"
says Colin Slee. "Itıs all a bit hazardous because it's
not like a normal carol service. The people who come
risk getting picked on to sing a solo, read a lesson,
or jump up and down jangling their keys!"
