Guest Patrick Coleman Posted September 2, 2007 Share Posted September 2, 2007 Our organist got stuck 90 miles away when his car broke down this morning (don't ask!) and so I ended up playing for those parts of the liturgy that didn't require the priest to be actively functioning elsewhere. We use full vestments here, and I do find it very constraining, especially if the chasuble gets caught underneath me on the organ stool (good for singing alto!). Some months ago I had to do the same and tried to provide a fanfare on the Choir Trumpet in the second verse of Stand up for Jesus only to find my left hand caught up the right sleeve of my alb and then playing ten or more notes through the chasuble fabric. It's not that much easier with a cassock and surplice for Evensong. When your mocking laughter has subsided, are there any suggestions that might help, as - not being very practical - I am sure I've missed something very simple that could make the situation far easier to handle.
