What a fabulous time we had in Motcombe, Dorset this weekend, reprising our Shepherds and Kings programme for Epiphany. We all fell in love with this beautiful village, church and our wonderful hosts and audience. We were even treated to canapés, a delicious post-concert feast (that salted caramel roulade 😋💭) and wine – what an occasion! And the singing was pretty good too 😇😍.

Terrific to have Simon Dinsdale with us for organ and piano accompaniment, plus special guest instrumentals from Patrick Moore and Louise Hill on bass guitar and violin for one energetic piece!

Always remembering Katie J, who made this very special connection for us ❤️
