A Bath-based mu­sic man will unite hun­dreds of singers across the globe in a fes­tive lock­down choir.

More than 900 singers had joined choir leader Grenville Jones’ weekly Good Af­ter­noon Choirs across the West Coun­try be­fore lock­down.

Re­hearsals then moved on­line via Youtube, al­ter­nat­ing weekly with Ben Eng­land, from Bris­tol, and Matt Finch, from Bath, who pre­vi­ously took three Good Af­ter­noon Choirs each week.

The on­line choir will soon start work­ing on a Christ­mas con­cert that will fea­ture Matt Finch and fam­ily as well as Grenville’s cel­e­brated Bath Male Choir.

Grenville said: “Hun­dreds join us each week and ‘sofa singing’ in your own home is reach­ing out and help­ing many who are iso­lated and des­per­ately miss­ing their live choir singing with their friends.”

There will be car­ols for ev­ery­one to sing at home and some spe­cial sea­sonal items from the choir.
