Sunday Afternoon Music Video: Gaelic Blessing
My daughter Ladybug and I are tremendously enjoying singing in the choir together at our new parish. The musical level is high enough that I am pleasantly challenged to get back in serious vocal shape, and the director and members are kind enough that she and the other child member feel lovingly welcomed--a perfect combination!
This lyrical piece by John Rutter, sung here by the Edinburgh singers, was our anthem this morning--a new setting for me of a long-loved text. As I searched YouTube for the right arrangement Ladybug spontaneously began liturgical dancing around the living room, a joyous visual reinforcement of the peace that it brings me.
What hymns did you sing today in worship? Which songs bring you peace?
