Music Ministry: Hymns on High
Lent is a season of beautiful liturgical music
The best way to describe last Sunday’s service was short, cozy, and upbeat with plenty of coffee for those in attendance. The Mardi Gras service featured Ginny playing banjo with Doug on guitar, Clark Eno on drums and George Skidd on bass.
Speaking of Doug, he has a new CD. This Sunday, I will be selling his latest CD titled, “Hymns on High.” Eight of the 12 hymns have been played during one or more of the Jazz Sunday services. They are familiar and may have additional backup instruments on some of the songs. Ginny’s lovely voice can be heard on one of the songs. The cost is $10. See me during coffee hour. I still have a few of Doug’s first CD.
This Sunday, weather permitting, the choir will sing a gospel tune, and a spiritual hymn, as the music will support both the theme for Sunday and Black History Month. It is also the first Sunday of Lent, a season during which you will hear the choir sing some of the most beautiful liturgical music ever composed.
There was an omission in last week’s E-Tidings. The second song that Nancy sang so beautifully was “Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen”.
Peace through music, Jim Moriarty
