Save the date! Warm up the mulled wine, light the fire, relax on your sofa and join us in song for the Downside Virtual Christmas Carol Service!

We hope you will join us on Monday 7th December at 2pm, from the comfort of your own home. Please register for the free event below to ensure you receive the link.

You will be warmly welcomed by the Head Master, listen to speeches from the Heads of School and be entertained by our wonderful Schola Cantorum in the magnificent Downside Abbey Church, accompanied by Director of Music, Mr McNamara.

Mr McNamara would like to include a performance of Christopher Tambling’s brilliant setting of Ave Maria given by an OGs’ Virtual Choir, and all OGs are welcome to take part. The plan is that you would record your contribution at home, and send it in for inclusion in the final edit. Please register your interest with the Music Department by 1st November 2020, indicating whether you are soprano/alto/tenor/bass, and a rough indication of your current level of skill on a rough scale of one to Pavarotti! Mr McNamara will send further details and full instructions to those that responded.

As the normal collection will be unable to take place following the Service, an option to add a donation is available below as part of the registration form. Should you wish to make a kind donation, the total funds raised will be evenly split between the Abbey Church and the Downside School Bursary Fund.
