Full statement here: in brief — Masking is now optional but encouraged, for church attendees. For this event, singers will be unmasked, which does create risk, so if you feel at all nervous about it, throat scratchy or like that, stay safe and no worries if you need to stay home. Better to be on the safe side, please.
Order of Service and links for Wednesday 12/21/22
We are: Erin McGaughan, Sienna Geal, Andrea Carino, Jennifer Boles, plus hopefully Eric Odel and if we’re real lucky, Lavon Hardison.
Timing: 5 pm for singers, please. Text me if you know you will be late. 206-422-1740. We are very short-staffed, so I may be the only who can let you in, which means we can’t start rehearsing til you’re there.
When there are remote-in guests, this is the link: https://vmix.at/5usfgX (no remote this Sunday)
We’re doing this in a fairly dark room, but I don’t want the blue glow of digital tablets, so I will print out the music and have music stands with reading lights. You may have to share.
5:00 to 6:30 — rehearse all music.
7:00 — intro – outside the meditation hall, we’ll tell attendees what to expect. THEN we enter into the hall.
Cordes Natus Ex Parentis (Of the Father’s Love Begotten) – I may ask from a vocal drone for this. I will sing this, verse 1 thru 3, but all please be ready to sing the final phease “seculorum seculis”. I will add an English evermore and evermore each time, too for attendees to sing along with.
I’m hoping Eric will do verses 4 and 5 in latin.
latin sheet music
English hymnal page (just in case)
Drum – I need a steady hand person to hit the frame drums here, very slow, about 90 seconds to 1 minute.
Ending Solstice Blessing – all to read aloud.
