Carols

The Living Out Loud choir performance at Community Church of St Mark Christmas Carols on 22 December (inc. Love Just Bubbles Over, All You Need is Love).

We also sang some climate-change related carols – here are the words to the 12 Fossil-Fuel-Free Days of Christmas (words. G Thompson & P Barson; music. Trad. – Creative Commons licence – sing to you heart’s content).
