It has been a long time since there has been a resident priest around over the Christmas break. This has meant that there has been daily Mass. Someone thought it would be nice if we sang for the Octave day. In fact there was 2-1 congregation-choir. I was minded to begin with A noble flower of Judah but the numbers suggested something probably more familiar. The challenge how is it still Christmas

Next year the Solemnity will fall on the Sunday - so good to be prepared.
