In Memoriam: Barbara Brown

The choir has sung at a few significant events in the lives of our members, we have done a wedding, a child dedication, funerals of family members and even a renewal of wedding vows, but for the first time we will be singing at the funeral of one of our own.

Barbara, seen here 4th from the left in 2011 was a member of the choir for about 10 years, and requested prior to her recent death that we sing the South African song Shoholoza because it gave her great pleasure. This song was famously sung at the funeral of Nelson Mandela in 2013.  Mandela’s supporters singing outside his house.

So, we will miss Barbara, and this will be our small tribute to her.
