 200 years of Methodism in Leamington Spa – Action for Children Christmas event

And Glory Shone Around’, Immanuel’s Ground West Gallery Quire, 
13th December 2017

This famous group of costumed singers and instrumentalists originated in Warwick and has revived the traditions of singing in rural parish churches in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. During an excellent evening, they performed no fewer than five versions of While Shepherds Watched. The link with the 200 years project was one Thomas Jarman who was sent to Portland Street in the nineteenth century to improve our Methodist singing. The instrumental treat was some fine bass playing from a real live serpent (see Google, ‘serpent instrument’ and see below to the director’s right).
