Katherine Henderson in De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex - December, 1971

from Had I But Known, page 73:

Starting that December [1971] and continuing every year since, was the great joy of attending the “Festival of Christmas Music” at the De La Warr Pavilion at Bexhill. It is a magnificent performance, the music and choir have to be heard to understand the impact it has on the audience. The sheer joy of it always brings tears to my eyes, and on leaving one performance, I look forward to the next in a year’s time.
