The Season to Sing! (Steeple 2014.12)
This month there are a lot of exciting opportunities to hear our music program at its finest. On Sunday, December 14, the choir will present a series of Christmas anthems based on folk songs from around the world, mixed with readings and reflections. The following Sunday, December 21, we get to mark something off my bucket list, which has been there since the very first Sunday I worked at Edwards Church. That Sunday I saw our bluegrass band at our outdoor worship service, and I knew that I wanted to have them accompany the choir at some point in the future. Now, six years later, I’m finally making that a reality, as On the Fence will perform the familiar “Gesu Bambino” with the choir. A few days later, we will sing the reflective “Rosa Mystica” as part of our candlelight service. I’ve always thought that Advent was the best time to be a church musician. I hope you look forward to it as much as I do!
