Carol Service Report

15 Dec 23

Last night saw St Mary’s Church absolutely packed to bursting with students, parents, staff and alumni. With standing room only the festive buzz of the much anticipated Carol Service of Nine Lessons and Carols was palpable as the congregation awaited the Chamber Choir’s procession.

Led by our own Reverend Wilson, whose return to Woodbridge School has been met with much celebration, the service was both reflective and jubilant. Year 8 soloist Lola set the tone of the musical feast with her soaring soprano voice with Once in Royal David’s City. What followed can only be described as breath taking. The Chamber Choir was simply mesmeric as they punctuated the service with anthems ranging from Taverner’s ethereal The Lamb to the anthemic Glory, Glory, Glory with James leading the choir in a Gospel showstopper that left the congregation wanting to jump to their feet in jubilation.

Surely the Carols were heard across the town as past choir members raised the roof with enthusiastic singing in the congregation accompanied by Jamie John Hutchings on the organ? This extraordinary throng was all lead by Claire Weston, whose shoes never fail to disappoint, but more importantly conducts the choir with a precision and skill that produces the most exquisite sound from our exceptional Woodbridge School Chamber Choir.

Thank you to everyone who came along to listen and enjoy the beautiful evening of festive song and celebration.
