in 2009, Richard Skinner and I embarked on writing a musical. The result was Bethlehem! – a Christmas musical for schools and communities. The first performance was given in December of that year by the Beacon Primary School, Exmouth, Devon.
This was closely followed by performances in Bishop Auckland, County Durham …
… Newton St Cyres (Devon) and Crediton. Other performances have followed, including a joint venture involving Ide Aloud (Community Choir of Ide, Devon) and Ide Primary School.
A selection of songs from the Ide performance (2010) is here:
And here is a choral version of Song 10 (Shepherds’ Carol) sung by the choir of St David’s Church, Exeter.
