On 10 December Godolphin Vocal Ensemble performed in a charity carol concert at Westminster Cathedral. Isobel opened the event by singing solo the first verse of ‘Once in Royal David’s City’. Her beautiful voice filled the building and delighted the audience. Vocal Ensemble sang Ring The Bells (music by Alan Bullard; words by Frances Jane Crosby), Star Carol (music John Rutter arr. Kenneth Pont; words John Rutter) and a piece specially written for them by Mrs Sparkhall: This Holy Night. The most rapturous applause of the night was for Vocal Ensemble Violins who played Jingle All The Way (James Pierpont arranged Olivia Sparkhall). Well done to violinists Harriet, Isobel, Flora, Jessica, Jemima, Charlotte, Philippa, Shan, and thanks to Lucinda on sleigh bells and Ms Palfreyman on piano. We were thrilled to hear that the concert raised over £25,000 for Barnardo’s. Thank you very much indeed to everyone who supported the concert.
Photographs of the concert can be found here.
