Carols by Skype

9603893_origAt something to 6pm on 20th or it may have been later by the time the technical hiccoughs settled down the Blue Mountains Franciscan Church and friends settled down to a rather hilarious Carol Service by Skype.

With community all over the greater Sydney area we find technology a wonderful thing when it works. After several dropped audio and visual and both, we got underway to sing 17of our favourite carols.

  1. It Came Upon The Midnight Clear
  2. Hark The Herald Angels Sing
  3. While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night
  4. O Come All Ye Faithful
  5. Joy To The World
  6. Away In A Manger
  7. Silent Night
  8. Carol Of The Birds
  9. Once In Royals David’s City
  10. The First Nowell
  11. O Come O Come Emmanuel
  12. We Three Kings of Orient Are
  13. Angels From the Realms Of Glory
  14. What Child Is This
  15. O Holy Night
  16. Ding Dong Merrily On High
  17. O Little Town of Bethlehem

At one point in the evening one of the congregation had to leave to attend to a visit by the constabulary over ???? but left a message for us to say they would be back. At the very end Blossom the dog knocked over the Computer at one end.

An hilarious and un-tuneful night was enjoyed by all must do it again next year.
