Harvest of songs.

A Warwickshire church celebrated Harvest Festival yesterday by singing some of the most popular songs of the 20th Century.

Tunes such as Climb Every Mountain, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Summertime and the Beatles' classic Strawberry Fields Forever, were among the songs expected to be sung in St Peter's Church.

Residents of Wootton Wawen voted for their top five favourite songs from a list of 20 in their village magazine for a more alternative service.

Speaking before the service, vicar Canon Lawrence Mortimer, said: 'We enjoyed a countdown to the millennium service four years ago singing our favourites from the past 50 years. Then there was a Christmas theme singalong two years ago which attracted a lot more than the carol service.'
