A purely joyful sound
I have so thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas holiday season and all the wonderful worship/music opportunities that transpired here at The Federated Church of Orleans. I deeply appreciate all the hours of work and loads of spirit and energy and determination it took to produce “Christmas in Your Heart.” And the Quiet Advent Vespers. And the Sunday Musicale on December 17. Thank you, EVERYONE.
Here’s the deal, though. I heard some FABULOUS singing as the “angel chorus” performed during Christmas in Your Heart. Did you know FCO has an “angel chorus”! That certainly was NO surprise to me. I hear the congregation sing every Sunday. But the visitors who attended the concert were inescapably drawn into the inspiration of the moment and truly “sang like angels!” I’ll say the same thing here that I said that evening as I crossed from piano to Chancel Choir. “I’d just like to let EVERY ONE OF YOU know that this choir rehearses every Wednesday evening at 7:00 p.m. ANY and/or ALL of you are cordially invited to participate. We begin our new season on Wednesday, January 3 at 7:00 p.m. See you there!
