The sounds of mu­sic filled the air at the Church Of Christ The King Angli­can Church last Sun­day evening as the church launched its Christ­mas Won­der­land.

The event cel­e­brates the Christ­mas spirit in an en­chant­ing fash­ion on the grounds of the church to ap­peal to all ages. There will be fea­tures of what is most recog­nised as the Bar­ba­dian Christ­mas, high­light­ing from the tra­di­tional el­e­ments of Caribbean spir­i­tu­ally, to as­pects of the sea­son that we share with Christ­mases around the world.

Af­ter Rev. Robert Luther Johnson gave the prayer and open­ing re­marks, the Christ The King Aug­mented Choir got things off to a splen­did start with a piece called We Are Singing For The Lord Our Light and this was fol­lowed by a per­for­mance by the Royal Bar­ba­dos Po­lice Force Band, with Amaz­ing Grace and Light Cal­vary. The band of tal­ented mu­si­cians, un­der the di­rec­tion of the an­i­mated Act­ing Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent An­drew Lynch, was a plea­sure to watch and lis­ten to.

Ave Maria was one of the pieces cho­sen by well known singer An­dre Hoyte, who later teamed up with an­other fa­mil­iar singer Tris­tan Layne, to do O Mimi Tui Non Torni La Bo­heme, and adding va­ri­ety to the pro­gramme was a vi­olin solo by vi­o­lin­ist Chante White. She was fol­lowed by for­mer Junior Monarch Aisha Butcher, who show­cased her ver­sa­til­ity as she also did op­er­atic pieces.

Other ren­di­tions were done by St Pa­trick’s Youth Cho­rale, Kofi Gilkes, Tavon Boyce and Mark Forde.

The Christ­mas Won­der­land will fea­ture live per­for­mances ev­ery week­end from De­cem­ber 14 to 30.
