Christmas music at St Margaret’s
This year we exchanged our fund-raising summer concert for a Concert of Carols and Christmas Music which was held on Sunday 14 December in St Margaret’s RC Memorial Church, East Port, Dunfermline. The audience almost filled the main body of the church, and they were very appreciative of the wide range of seasonal music and poetry we performed. For most people the concert was also their first opportunity to hear the wonderful sound that the new organ at St Margaret’s could produce. Well done to all our soloists and readers, especially Carol, who overcame her own illness to sing not just one but two difficult solo pieces.
We ended by wishing everyone a Merry Christmas – the Christmas cheer for the Society was that the concert netted about £1,200 for our funds! Thanks to all those who took part, with special thanks to Willie Campbell for his musical direction and brilliant organ playing, to Mike Pendlowski for his creative use of the new church lighting system, and to Sinead Black and Anne Dolbear for all they did to organise both performers and catering.
