The Guild's annual Carol Service was again held in the marvellous Chapel Royal of St Peter ad Vincula - a spectacular venue. As the parish church of Her Majesty's palace and fortress, the Tower of London and a 'Royal Peculiar', the Chapel is under the direct jurisdiction of the Sovereign. Rev'd Cortland Fransella, assistant priest, took the service whilst the Choir of the Chapels Royal led and entertained us with a number of festive favourites along with some solo pieces, accompanied by the organist, Christian Wilson, who also delivered a rousing organ postlude, which gained warm applause. The music was under the direction of the Master of Music, Colm Carey. The lessons were delivered by Guild members Mr Stephen Haylock, Mrs Janet Bridden, Mr Timothy Milward, Mr Peter Allcard (The Master) and the Rev'd Fransella, who also gave a thought provoking sermon regarding the Christmas Message. Afterwards, some 140 Guild members and guests mingled and exchanged festive good wishes over a glass of wine and mince pies, before departing into the cold London air to make their way home to prepare for the Christmas period, with the 'Christmas Message' providing some food for thought. Photos of the event can be found here.
