 Warminster’s Athenaeum Singers Christmas Carol Concert for Cancer Charities Tuesday 11th December. 

 Through the generosity of its supporters, The Athenaeum Singers of Warminster will be donating nearly £480 to two cancer charities. The money was raised through a retiring collection at their carol concert in Christchurch last week.

The audience, in excellent voice, participated in singing some Christmas favourites and were treated to a varied programme of carols from the choir.  This included a contemporary carol.’ The sleep of the Infant Jesus’ by Gareth Treseder. The carol is this year’s commissioned composition in the ‘Choirs against Cancer’ initiative. Choirs are invited to perform the carol and include a contribution to Macmillan Cancer support.  Dorothy House in Winsley is a local charity which will also benefit from the evening.

Director of Music, Cole Bendall, enthralled the audience with a tenor solo, The Corpus Christi Carol, and the choir’s accompanist, Dr Douglas Stevens treated the audience to one of his own compositions. The programme was interspersed with poems and readings ably presented by members of the choir which were at once both highly amusing and thought provoking.

The concert was followed by refreshments and hot punch and the festive atmosphere was greatly enjoyed.  The whole evening had a warmth and joyousness which was a perfect introduction to Christmas. As one audience member commented, the only trouble with the concert was that there wasn’t a second half!
