Christmas social


Tuesday 13th, to finish off the singing term after our concert on the 8th, we got together for some social catching up. Florian, Anja and the church council at St Finian’s were kind enough to host our pre-Christmas social in the lovely Lutherhaus. It was “bring your own”, without too much preparation or fuss, but the turnout was very good and everyone brought so much that we never stopped eating and drinking. Thanks everyone for another lovely evening and Merry Christmas,

Bach Cantata from scratch

Last Sunday morning some members of the choir joined other singers and a wonderful orchestra with really lovely soloists for the “Bach Cantata from Scratch” service in St Finian’s church, Adelaide Rd, Dublin. The musical aspect was organised by Werner Blau and with the service led by the pastor Florian von Issendorff. We performed ‘Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan’, BWV 100 (What God does, that is well done) and it was just one of those perfect mornings. We were an ad hoc group, but I think sounded well and definitely had a lot of fun. Thank you everyone for participating!
