The Norman high altar in St Mary´s Church.
St Mary´s Church, one of three medieval churches in Devizes, lies redundant at the moment. It is kept alive with one service a week, and attempts are being made to turn the lovely space into a community arts centre. The plans for an extension have been turned down twice, which is most unfortunate. We sang a carol service here in 2013, so hopefully this will become an annual event. We sang without an accompaniment, and managed to stay reasonably in tune.
What a wonderful light in which to sing.
My candle and carol sheet, and not easy to photograph with one hand!
I had problems trying to sing, hold a candle and take some photographs, and in the process I managed to get my right hand covered in hot wax. Mince pies and mulled wine were served after the service, which were very welcome.
