Choir update from Elizabeth
Oct 4, 2021

I wish to heartily thank Ann and Diane for their wonderful contributions to our choir. And I thank the parish for being so supportive of our efforts as we resume singing, even with masks!
I have done several things to make it easier for us: we are using the same music each week, except of course for feast days; I have chosen tunes with fewer high notes; and we speak the Creed and Lord’s Prayer.
These changes are also intended to make it easier for you to join in. It is a blessing for us to hear members of the congregation singing along, and as we know from the Old Testament, joyful singing has always been part of our worship of God.
