We were already working on ideas for our advent/Christmas ‘Arrival’ event at LST
We’d thought about presenting a different take on the nine lessons and carols.
We have just done a recording for the daily service up in Manchester with the lovely Miriam and Katharine our producers there when they asked if we ever written songs for Christmas!
That reminded us of a dream we had to write carols/Christmas songs so we came back and started to work on songs set to these 9 readings.
2 of those carols we debuted with LST choir at the arrival event a few weeks back.
Such a joy hearing then take the songs to heart and to present them in a way that connected with our audiences too
A child is born for us“ will debut on Radio 2/Sunday hour Christmas Eve.
