Carolling with Candy and friends
Workshop 3

December 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

€10 – €25

With Candy Verney and Joseph Moras

Fed up with Covid? We can still sing together! Come join us to celebrate the festive season:

  • Unusual and forgotten carols from around Ireland, the UK and other parts of the world
  • Easy Winter rounds
  • Learn one or two harmony parts

What songs will we sing?

We’ll explore some fascinating and unusual carols from diverse traditions, with some background history thrown in. In 17th Century UK, the puritans banned singing in churches, so the people went to sing in the pubs. This tradition still goes on to this day. Often using the words we know, the songs are wonderful fresh, fun to sing, very seasonal but not religious. There are also many beautiful medieval carols. Each session with include 2 unusual carols, one well known one, and winter rounds. Expect a wonderful festive feast!

Joseph first visited the Song House in 2017, and walked into our hearts. He has visited the Song House each year since, only prevented by Covid 19 from coming in 2020. He runs a singing school in Dubai, but his roots are in southern India. You will be transported to these lands when he introduces us to a carol in his native language- Konkani.
