Review of the Year:

Out of 29 Sundays with the choir and organist, the choir has sung 24 anthems.
Only 3 have been repeated.
The choir has learnt 11 new anthems this year.
The choir has put on 2 concerts, raising just over £445 for 2 charities (The Children's Hospice Associaton Scotland and The National AIDS Trust)

I would like to thank the choir for their hard work and unstinting support throughout my first year as organist.
