A great big thank you to everyone who made this performance possible, especially our organist William Campbell, assistant organist at Dunfermline Abbey, our guest conductor, Jill Goode from Maidenhead, and Myra Tarr, whose idea it was, and who patiently endured hours of ‘note-bashing’ at the early rehearsals.

Thank you too to Sue Masson, who wielded the baton at the first rehearsal with organ, to Rev Tim Bennison and Deacon Sarah McDowall, who welcomed the congregation and led us in prayer both before and after the performance, and to Lesley Yellowlees and Erica Lock who provided seasonal refreshments afterwards.

We are really grateful to the many friends from other churches and choirs who augmented the St Margaret’s choir for this occasion. It was very heartening to hear the week–by–week improvement, and to realise at the end of the final Monday rehearsal that, in theatrical parlance, “we had a show”. And, thanks to the many who had circulated the fliers and posters, we also had an audience!
