Two months hence, all this seems far away!
We had a second lovely evening this year at The glorious London Library in St James' Sq. - singing at a fundraiser at the behest of our old friend Tim Rice, surrounded by a wonderful collection of writers.
On this December eve., we were joined by Rick Wakeman, doing amazing things on a keyboard whilst standing up!
Marvellous readings from Sinead Cusack & Robert Powell - a starry evening it was!
Then it was back to Belgium - Oosterzele & Nieuwpoort, for seasonal fun with the splendid Chris Hatt joining us on piano, having taken a couple of days off running Hamilton in the West End - we are honoured!
A little later, we performed in Sint Willibrorduskerk, Heusden in two beautiful evenings of christmas loveliness joined by Exsultate choir, an orchestra & Bruno Sprengers conducting.
Great to have a chance to work with larger forces; expanding our arrangements to fill the church with joy.
Thanks to Bruno and all the other musicians - we had an excellent three days just before Christmas. We were homeward bound on Christmas Eve - via lovely Belgian beer on The Grand Place down in Brussels.
Just after we were with more showbiz royalty, Gaby Roslin on Radio London; she invited us on her show to discuss our gigs at The Pheasantry, Chelsea, once more with Chris Hatt.
As ever, a great experience, with friends old and new.
Looking forward to seeing you all again soon,
Mark, Mike, Chris & Billy
