This is just a quick heads-up about two carol services that le Choeur de Parisot will be giving this year under the direction of maestro Peter Nowfel. Both concerts will feature the usual readings and medley of carols (in French and English) plus some Christmas songs performed by the choir only.
- Sunday 15th December in the church at Limogne-en-Quercy (Lot), starting at 16h00.
- Saturday 21st December in the church at Parisot (Tarn-et-Garonne), also starting at 16h00.
Being an international choir, the readings will be in a variety of languages: French, English, Dutch, Occitan and…Swedish (courtesy of my husband).
Getting there early is strongly advised if you want a decent seat. Last year the church at Parisot was packed to capacity. People were seated behind the altar, on the steps up to the pulpit, basically anywhere they could find a seat. Some even had to stand in the aisle. We must have broken a few health and safety regulations. But, as Père Serge, the local priest who is also a choir member, pointed out, you can’t shut the doors of the church against people.
Venez nombreux if you live in the area or are visiting. This is a great way to get the festive season off to a cracking start.
