Christmas Concert At Bereseford Hall

The magnificent Josephine Tam made an appearance at Beresford Hall on Friday 20 December, 2013, for a very special Christmas Concert, a precursor to their Christmas Party. We performed a selection of sacred songs and Christmas carols, including duets of Ave Maria (Schubert), Silent Night and Ding Dong Merrily on High, a version of The 12 Days of Christmas with all the actions, a version of Bach’s Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring with Josie on Violin, my very favourite Australian Christmas Carol – The Silver Stars are in the Sky, plus a selection of well-known favourites such as The First Nowell and Away in a Manger. The concert was universally loved, even by one of the residents, Heather Macmillan, who was an opera singer herself – a contemporary of Dame Joan! I was so glad I didn’t know that before we started singing!
