Christmas crackers from the Wives

One attractive Christmas song followed another in this appropriately festive concert by the Military Wives. Traditional carols like O Little Town of Bethlehem and Ding Dong Merrily on High were performed in snappy new arrangements which included uplifting key changes. Not to mention more commercial repertoire like Jingle Bells and Let it Snow. Particularly fascinating was an arrangement of Away in a Manger which cleverly juxtaposed both the English and American versions.
