We had the pleasure of performing a special Christmas Concert for The Link at Calvary Church, Kingswinford on Saturday 5th December, 2-4pm. Mince pies & mulled punch were provided to get us in the Christmas spirit!
“Gentlemen – and ladies! – thanks so much for entertaining us at Calvary Church (on Saturday afternoon.) Just what we needed to get us in the Christmas spirit, programme spot on, singing superb. May God bless you all richly. Glyn B.

WOMVC were proud to lead Wolverhampton’s Civic Carol Service 2015. The service began with Once in Royal David’s City.
After the 1st lesson, the choir sang The Advent Hymn & Joy to the World followed by a congregational carol ‘See him lying on a bed of straw.’
After the 2nd lesson, everyone sang ‘O little town of Bethlehem’ & after the 3rd lesson we sang the Christmas version of Kwmbayah & O Holy Night.
After the 4th lesson everyone sang ‘Hark the herald angels sing’, then after the 5th lesson, the choir sang How great thou art & Let there be peace on Earth.
After the Prayers of Intercession, we all sang ‘O come all ye faithful’ to finish the service.
The Wolverhampton Orpheus Male Voice Choir will be in fine voice at the city’s annual Civic Carol Service next month.
The traditional service, which is open to all, takes place at Darlington Street Methodist Church on Wednesday 9 December, 2015, from 3.30pm and will be led by the Reverend David Lavender. Mince pies and mulled wine will be served afterwards.
Wolverhampton Mayor Councillor Ian Brookfield said: “We’re looking forward to a fantastic afternoon of song in the company of the Wolverhampton Orpheus Male Voice Choir. This fantastic annual event is sure to get everyone into the festive spirit.”
