Children from Holy Rosary Primary School in Wolverhampton were full of energy before their carol service

Children from Holy Rosary Primary School in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, had obviously taken note of Scripture as they made a “joyful noise unto the Lord”, writes Józef Łopuszyński.

The singing was full of energy and a privilege to listen to. During their carol service, the school choir (pictured here singing outside the church before the event) sang “Once in Royal David’s City” a capella, and the staff choir sang Panis Angelicus in two-part harmony accompanied by just a solo flute. Both were very prayerfully performed.

Priest-in-charge Fr Dawid Piskorz said: “It is wonderful that we can gather together as a school community in our church to sing carols for the glory of God.

“This is a wonderful way to prepare for Christmas.”
