ST Mary’s College in Crosby heralded the start of the Christmas season by holding its annual carol concert.

Staff, pupils and their families gathered at a packed SS Peter and Paul Church, on Liverpool Road, to enjoy the atmospheric service in the 100-year-old building.

The concert, which was partly candlelit, featured a selection of readings, carols and instrumental and choral performances co-ordinated by the school’s Director of Music, Andrew Byers.

Highlights of the evening included Sophie Clarke’s solo soprano aria Bereite Dich from JS Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, accompanied by Ellie Griffiths on violin and Isabelle Bond on cello.

The traditional event finished in a traditional way with the serving of mulled wine and mince pies back at the school.

St Mary’s College Principal, Mike Kennedy, said: “The carol concert is always a very popular event with families and a really enjoyable way to mark the start of the festive season. 

”I would like to pay tribute to all the students and staff whose hard work and talent helped to make the service such a first-class musical evening.“
