Saturday singing

Today was an interesting one, full of music.

At lunchtime a group of us met up at the Old Jameson Distillery and sang some Christmas carols in the entrance hall, to entertain all the visitors. And in return, the generous management of the distillery gave us some free food and drinks. And then at Evensong later that afternoon, we had the TV cameras in from RTÉ.

Our Director and Assistant Director of Music were interviewed for the telly about their preparations for Christmas, and apparently they also wanted to film the choir singing as well – so we ended up having this camera crew wandering up and down the south transept during the service, which was a little bit distracting.
