Fundraising Feature: Christmas Spirit – Courtesy of The Crooks | 21 December 2017

December 21, 2017


By Helen Hyland, Fundraising Manager, ME Association.

Last weekend, The Crooks, a lively saxophone quartet, played to the Christmas crowds at Borough Market in London, in aid of the ME Association.

The Crooks at Borough Market

Rowena Rifai, a member of the quartet, sent us a recording of some of their Christmas ensemble, and if the Christmas Spirit is proving a little elusive so far this year, then these jolly pieces might be just what you need.

Thanks Rowena and friends for playing for M.E. and for the ME Association.

The following tracks are all available via Soundcloud:

  1. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
  2. Noel Nouvelet
  3. Sleigh Ride
  4. Santa Baby
  5. In the Bleak Midwinter

You can select them individually, or it will play through them all automatically.
