Hertford Choir Care Home Video

The Plymouth Brethren Christian Church visited an old people’s care home in Hoddesdon to perform a concert for them on 24th December 2013. Over 40 enthusiastic choral students from Hertford and Barnet spent many hours, often in the evenings practicing the songs, to a high standard.

The group consisted of a senior choir and a junior choir, who toured the home separately, performing in the many day rooms to the residents a wide variety of gospel songs and old favourites. He, Candy Cane Lane, Autumn Leaves and Onward Christian Soldiers, were some of the songs performed.

The harmonious music was greatly appreciated by the elderly residents, who joined in with the rhythm by foot tapping and clapping, and singing along to the music.

They were all presented with a goody gift bag as a present, which they were delighted with.

Comment from the Senior Events organiser of the nursing home was ‘you can see how much they are enjoying it by the look on their faces, it will be so interesting to hear their comments afterwards and over the next few days, this enjoyment will stay with them’.

It became evidently clear the performers enjoyed the event as much as the residents. Their message to the home was ‘We are doing this because we enjoy making people happy by singing to them’

      The falling leaves drift by my window,
      The falling leaves of red and gold.
      I see your lips, the summer kisses,
      The sun-burnt hands I used to hold.

      Since you went away, the day grow long,
      and soon I’ll hear, soon I’ll hear old winter’s song,
      But I miss you most of all my darling, most of all,
      When autumn leaves start to fall.
