Music is back!

All summer long, we've had a break from music at church. Summer is the season when Barbara Verdile, our music director and organist, goes on a long vacation. We usually switch to the 8:30 service in the summer, so we have the whole day ahead of us after church, but the downside is that the service is sans music--not even hymns.

So it is with great joy that we welcome back music into the service in the autumn. All last week and this week, the kids were doing choristers camp at the church. Their final performance was a festival service called "How Can I Keep from Singing?"

This service was really special. The kids did all the work. Not only did they do all the singing, but also all the readings and Psalms. It was a lot of work, and they only had five days to learn it all, but they did amazingly well!

Here's some of the music from the service. I hope you enjoy it!
