At 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.
- It Came Upon The Midnight Clear
- Hark The Herald Angels Sing
- While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night
- O Come All Ye Faithful
- Joy To The World
- Away In A Manger
- Silent Night
- Carol Of The Birds
- Once In Royals David’s City
- The First Nowell
- O Come O Come Emmanuel
- We Three Kings of Orient Are
- Angels From the Realms Of Glory
- What Child Is This
- O Holy Night
- Ding Dong Merrily On High
- 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.
