  • January 03, 2015 Advent piece for Candle lighting

    Lovely piece - very easy to learn but nice harmony. One verse for each Sunday in Advent + Christmas Eve. After each verse is sung by the choir, an responsive litany is read, while music is lightly played. This can be read by Pastor & choir or Pastor & congregation if responses are put...

    in bulletin or on a screen. Then the choir repeats refrain. We also repeated the C. Eve verse for New Year's Eve and Pastor wrote a new Litany. Have done it for 2 years now. Next year will go back to an older one or purchase a new one as Joel Raney continues to write new ones. Even if you don't light an Advent Wreath each Sun. you could still do the piece and leave out that tiny section. Gives a continuity to the Advent Services.

  • January 13, 2014 Advent Blessing

    Three dedicated bell ringers, a Pastor, a handful of choir members and a little practice (timing reading to bkgd. music) made this a beautiful, singable opening to our Advent/Christmas Eve services. The congregation gave the musicians positive input, and enjoyed singing this piece. In addition, the pianist took it...

    to Switzerland where she and her "adopted" Swiss family performed it for evening mass at a nursing home.
