The Lyme Bay Chorale will be joined by a children’s choir at their Christmas concert, for the first time.
St Michael’s Children’s Choir is made up of pupils from local primary schools and has 14 members, the youngest aged just five.
The young singers will join the adult chorale for several parts of the concert, with some children singing solos.
In the arrangement of Good King Wenceslas, three children will sing the part of the pages, while chorale member Joss Kent will play the king. The children will also sing in Christus Natus Est by Cecilia McDowall and Ding Dong Merrily on High, arranged by Mack Wilberg.
Lyme Bay Chorale will perform the Poulenc Gloria, with a soprano solo by well-known local singer Chloe Stratta, and two other pieces by Paul Halley: Infinite Light and Watt’s Cradle Hymn. There will also be several audience carols.
The concert takes place at St Michael’s Church, Lyme Regis, on Sunday 9 December at 4pm.
