Songs from the Shows by the Isle Singers

Report on the Isle Singers’ Concert given on the 9th of October 2009 in St. Andrew’s Church, Witchford, Ely, Cambs. UK

The evening poured with rain. I struggled down to the church with the stand, my umbrella, a heavy raincoat and my brief case containing the music and wondered if it was worth it. It definitely was – we all enjoyed singing and hoped that the audience appreciated it too.

The programme was as follows:
