Christmas choirs

It's that time of year again, and our little village of St Pierre sur Erve has held its annual Christmas concert.  A collection of carols, interspersed with secular songs, and sprinkled with a little flute tootling.   I like these little village celebrations; informal, friendly and sincere.  Unfortunatly I couldn't stay for the vin chaud (mulled wine) afterwards, since the event ended at the same time that a concert in Evron (normally 20 minutes away at least) was due to start.

So, after a little sprint in the car, a choir and orchestra of different magnitude, for Monteverdi's Vespers at the basilique in Evron.  Fine performance too, by Volubilis, of this difficult work.  I get a cheap ticket, being a student at the music school.  Can't be bad :)

It sounds like a wonderful afternoon/evening of entertainment.
