After a week of frantic festive over indulgence Christmas has come and gone for another year. I received lots of lovely presents from friends and family and the presents that I gave out were also well received.
Without so much as a pause for breath we are back into the swing of things. First up in the new year was an organ recital given by James Paget at St. Mary’s Church in Slough.
The Christmas biblical story tells of the three wise men arriving at the stable. Today this is celebrated on the 6th of January and the music had been chosen accordingly.
I particularly enjoyed the finale piece called “Sleigh Bells Across the Snow” which was a combination of organ, bells, and slap stick (A paddle designed to produce a loud whacking sound).
