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.
