... and that means a lot of time at church. I just came back from choir practice.
We've got some fantastic hymns coming; Lent & Easter is so good for that. We're singing the Hallelujah again (remember the Hallelujah?) Easter Sunday morning (I love this video of it; the singers drive me nuts, they barely move (which is proper) but Andre Rieu is like, the best conductor evar). Can't go wrong with the Hallelujah :) Another one I want to introduce to you is Lacrymosa, we're singing it Good Friday service. I searched YouTube high and low and I like this version the best; it's clear and you get a good 'feel' for it. I don't quite sing it great, but I really do enjoy it. Another one is Pange, Lingua, Gloriosi; it's a Gregorian chant; really nice to listen to. I can just smell the incense (the priest lights) whenever I hear that song. I can't find Jean Racine's Cantique in English anywhere online so this is the link to the original French. Our tenors are fabulous with this song.
We are singing a lot of songs over the next few days, but these are the ones that really take a lot out of us (in a good way - we enjoy singing them!). I hope you've found the time to peruse them and have enjoyed them also.
It's late, so bed time for me. Until later!
