HYDE SOLDIERS EVENT and CHRISTMAS

Thank you to everyone for nominating your favourite songs.  Put your favourite songs into an email and send it to me – if you just mention it to me it may not be remembered!! – oh, that reminds me – Only remembered is on the list.  What others do you like?  This is quite urgent as I am choosing the songs now for October so please do let me know.  We don’t want to be learning new songs – one or two – no more.  So we are choosing a few of our favourites from over the years and a couple of new ones as this year marks the beginning of the end of the war – although not officially concluded until 1919.

Thinking ahead and I have a song which I want to introduce to the choir – and a little of it  might just be right for Hyde – do have a listen.  It may bring a tear to your eye – be prepared.

This is a big event.  The usual event will take place in the church, then afterwards to the Hyde Parish Hall on Hyde Street for a party, thank you and social gathering.  They are hoping to have a band and food to say thanks.  Please put this date into your diary – and if you want to be in the audience that is grand too but everyone will be singing together the cream of the Hyde songs, starting now – see somewhere along the road.

We have plenty of Christmas songs however we will learn two new songs.  We will start singing our Christmas songs in……April!
