Singers bring enchanting Advent music to Huntingdon

Parishioners in St Michael’s in Huntingdon have been treated to an afternoon of wonderful music. Fr Philip Shryane reports.

On Saturday December 4 the A Cappella singers ‘Enchanting’ performed for St Michaels. There are six members of ‘Enchanting’ and they simply enjoy singing together. Two of the group live in Sweden and join the rehearsals by zoom and then come over to the UK to take part in a short round of concerts just before Christmas.

The programme this year was entitled ‘Love knows no borders’; it is a mix of traditional carols and new music, some composed by Brogan Scott Casbon, one of the singers. About 35 parishioners enjoyed the music and joined in with three well known traditional Christmas carols.

The lovely music and words of the songs helped us prepare for Christmas during this season of Advent and made the concert very prayerful and meditative. The last song, Love knows no borders’, was written by Sally de Ford almost immediately after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and reflects the mission of Jesus to bring peace and goodwill to all people.

The concert is freely given by people who love singing in public and the retiring collection raised £173 for the parish funds at St Michael’s. Thank you very much to ‘Enchanting’ for such lovely music and thanks to parishioners who came to enjoy the lovely concert.
