Contrabombarde Posted December 19, 2013 Share Posted December 19, 2013 And with it comes the busiest time of the year for many church musicians. What special services and celebrations are people planning this year? Anything new or novel? At my own church, St Christopher's Springfield in Birmingham we have brought together I believe for the first time, a children's orchestra and adult choir from members of the congregation. We are hosting a Service of Nine Lessons and Carols this coming Sunday at 6pm, following the traditional King's format and readings. There will be a selection of old and brand new carols, some unaccompanied, some accompanied by organ and yet others orchestrated. The service begins with Kreb's "Wachet auf" on organ with cornet solo and ends with some Verdi, recognising the tercentenary and bicentenary respectively of these two composers' births this year. Christmas blessings, Contrabombarde Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
