Tonight at a single voice will sing the opening lines of the carol "Once in Royal David's City". Among all the 'panic Saturdays' and 'feral' complaints of the season as shoppers completely forget to show any kindness or mercy while pushing one another out of the way to get to that last Elsa doll, or that last packet of sage.
I was once that single voice as a child in my home town Cathedral in Nottingham, and it was magical - that was the magic that people chase after at Christmas. Being part of something bigger than me; the music of Christmas eve. Today I have a lot of people to say thank you to, so above I've recorded a short message. Thank you very much for your reading and your support this year to all my fantastic friends and family. It has been quite the year and I am grateful to be here in spite of its events.
