♬ Deck the Halls ♬

Deck the halls with boughs of holly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Tis the season to be jolly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Don we now our gay apparel,
Troll the ancient Yule tide carol,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Lyrics of Thomas Oliphant, Scottish musician (1799–1873) for traditional Welsh carol 

Gay apparel donned many in the audience at the Bach Elgar Choir's outstanding performance of Handel's Messiah at the church on Saturday evening. The church offered good acoustics for voices and instruments and the trumpet solo sent enjoyable shivers down my spine -- not to be confused with the other shivers from sitting in a old stone building. ;-) The yuletide season rings in my ears and heart.
