The first outing of 2015 for the Lindsay Chorale was to Conlig Presbyterian Church. The programme featured a range of sacred hymns and madrigals including; Let us with a Gladsome Mind, God so Loved the World, I waited for the Lord, and A Gaelic Blessing. The Chorale was very warmly received in Conlig and it was a great start to this year’s singing schedule.

The Lindsay Chorale finished a busy Christmas Season with three nights’ singing at the beautiful Montalto Estate in Ballynahinch. Montalto Estate General Manager, David Anderson, hosted the three consecutive Christmas services featuring a selection of Christmas music and recitations by the Chorale, finishing off with an audience participation number! The music was interspersed with festive readings from Dickens, Laurie Lee, and an entry from the Diary of the Reverend Francis Kilvert, read by John Ashe.
Here are the Lindsay Chorale at Montalto with their MD, John Dallas, and Accompanist, Sheelagh Greer.
The Lindsay Chorale were delighted to be asked back to perform at First Saintfield Presbyterian Church, the same church where the late Tom Lindsay formed the Chorale many years ago. They sang a variety of Christmas Carols as entertainment for the ‘Touch Club’, which organises activities and afternoon tea for the senior members of the church. The Chorale also greatly appreciated the delicious Christmas tea of sandwiches, cakes, mince pies, and trifle they were served after. At the end of the concert, Santa made a guest appearance and had even brought presents for the Chorale!
