Come and Sing

Our Come and Sing on September 4th, 2021 was a great success.

50 members and guests attended and we rehearsed and sang much of the Karl Jenkins’ “The Armed Man”.

Our thanks to Ed and Geoff and to everyone who turned out to sing again after so long


Better is peace than always war
And better is peace than evermore war
Always war, always war
Better is peace than evermore war
And better and better is peace

L’homme armé doit on douter?

Better is peace than always war
And better is peace than evermore war
Always war, always war
Better is peace than evermore war
And better and better is peace

Ring, ring, ring, ring
Ring, ring, ring, ring!
Ring out the thousand wars of old
Ring in the thousand years of peace
Ring out the old, ring in the new
Ring happy bells across the snow
The year is going, let him go
The year is going, let him go

Ring out the false, ring in the new
Ring out old shapes of foul disease
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old
Ring in the thousand years of peace
Ring in the valiant man and free
The larger heart, the kindlier hand
Ring out the darkness of the land
Ring in the Christ that is to be
The year is going; let him go
The year is going; let him go
Ring out the false, ring in the true
Ring, ring, ring, ring
Ring, ring, ring, ring!

God shall wipe away all tears
And there shall be no more death,
Neither sorrow nor crying,
Neither shall there be anymore pain.


Songs in the Park – Sunday 8 August

We held a free event at Frimley Lodge Park on Sunday, 8th August, called ‘Songs in the Park’ which was led by Ed, accompanied by Geoff.   

The idea was to have an informal and fun singing session of light music, so that members could meet to enjoy singing together again, prior to our Come&Sing workshop on 4th September and the beginning of term.  We convened in the Flourish Community Garden at 2.30pmBelow are two photos

Glow at RHS Wisley

A group of intrepid singers from Surrey Heath Singers were invited by RHS to sing carols at the sold-out Glow event at RHS Wisley Gardens.

We gathered at 4:30 pm and set up our stall near the cafe. Ed Bonner conducted us in a selection of carols and the public flocked (in a socially-distanced way) to hear us. We sang 3 sets and closed by 7:00 pm.
