Christmas Celebration 2018

The annual Stranmillis ‘Celebration of Christmas in Words & Music’ took place at St Bartholomew’s Church on Thursday 13th December.

The College Choir and various instrumentalists under the direction of lecturers Jayne Moore, Frances Burgess and Norman Richardson led the large congregation in traditional carols including ‘Once in Royal David’s City’, ‘See Amid the Winter’s Snow’ and ‘Silent Night’. In addition, choral, instrumental and ensemble pieces, including some by BEd music specialists, were interspersed with readings of familiar Biblical passages telling the First Christmas story as well as more recently written poems and reflections. Readers included College staff and students, Professor Sir Desmond Rea, Chair of the College’s Board of Governors, Dr Martin Hagan from St Mary’s University College and Jessica Werner, an International student from Germany.

Many thanks to all who helped to make the evening such a successful and inspiring celebration of Christmas.
