Irish Examiner - County - - News - Christy Parker

Youghal Choral So­ci­ety an­nual Christ­mas Carol Ser­vice takes place at 7pm this Sun­day at St Mary’s Par­ish Church, Ashe St.

“This is the 39th year of the event which is the long­est run­ning carol ser­vice in the town”, says co-or­gan­iser, so­prano and harpist, Una Whyte.

Un­flinch­ingly proud of the oc­ca­sion, Una says the free event “has be­come a hugely pop­u­lar tra­di­tion for many peo­ple in the east Cork and west Water­ford area”.

Guests on the night of car­ols, mu­sic and read­ings will in­clude the Mi­dle­ton IMP (Ir­ish Meat Pack­ers) choir, di­rected by John Casey; Youghal Youth Choir and orches­tra, di­rected by Pa­tri­cia Whyte; and tin whis­tle player, Siob­han Mur­phy. Ac­com­pa­nist on the night will be mu­si­cian Cor­mac de Frein.

The choral so­ci­ety’s reper­toire will in­clude its tra­di­tional and highly pop­u­lar ver­sion of ‘Oh Holy Night’.
