Doorstep Carols

Christmas 2020, eh? What’s it going to be like?

The Sheffield Carols group on Facebook has come up with this great idea:

You are all invited to the “On Your Own Doorstep” communal carol sing. Every Thursday in December, at 8pm, we will each sing on our own doorstep and our neighbours will sing on theirs. Singers, non-singers, players of instruments and people who think they can’t carry a tune in a bucket are all welcome. Here is the list of songs, with the lyrics and a backing track for the first one. The others will follow:

Thursday 3rd December – The First Nowell
Thursday 10th December – Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
Thursday 17th December – While Shepherds Watched / Sweet Chiming Bells
Thursday 24th December – Away in a Manger AND We Wish You a Merry Christmas
