The surprise factor for me was not that the music students were so outstanding, but that they also had some contemporary numbers, including Sam Saunders who sounded like Frank Sinatra singing Andy Williams' "it's the most wonderful time of the year" - as host Joseff Edwards and Grace Rudge commented immediately afterwards "it's like having Michael Buble singing at your Carol Service.
