Christmas, Totnes-style

Sorry, back again, definitely the last post this time … I wrote here before about the wonderful Totnes Christmas Markets that take place here the 3 Tuesdays before Christmas, but here’s something lovely and Christmassy that took place at this week’s final one….a short film by Emma Goude, who directed ‘In Transition 1.0’.

This is soooo cool. What a great arrangement and what a talented choir!
Now go and play some Monopoly.

Glad to see the ‘cheap lousy faggot’ line wasn’t airbrushed out from this version of the song 🙂

Truly lovely. Must have been fun rehearsing, too.

Now, this is not a criticism, but there was something I expected to happen all through it, which didn’t.

The circle of singers stayed closed; and I expected that at some predetermined point, it would open- the singers would step back- and grab the person outside the circle right behind them, and bring them into it. Then do that again.

I’ll have to see if I can arrange something like that here, next Christmas.

Hope is good, smiles are healthy.
