Latin Choirs delight Halle Choimaster

Matthew Hamilton the choirmaster to the Halle visited Our Lady’s to listen to two choirs singing Latin hymns. The older choir (some children from Y2 and Y4) sang Ave Maris Stella while children from Y1 sang the Angelus. After some loosening up exercises with Matthew the children performed their prayers to Our Lady. Matthew Hamilton was thrilled to hear such lovely singing and he was amazed to see that the children memorized  all the words. The children have been giving up their lunchtime play to learn the hymns. They sing them as a prayer to Our Lady. Many adults have told Mr Fernandes how happy it has made them to hear such young children sing Latin with such confidence and enjoyment.

Anna and Aya (two of our Digital Leader’s) recorded the children singing the two songs that they performed. Here they are…

Whilst we were having our party food we had a special visitor St. Nicholas!!!! He came to give us presents and told us that if we continue to be good perhaps he will come again to our houses with some more presents. Thank you St. Nicholas!!!!
