Brass Kickers and a Cello Shine at SUMC!

Monday, December 21st, 2009

The Brass Kickers and a Cello did a fantastic job with a lot of music this past Sunday!  For the first time when participating in a service they played the Prelude and Postlude as well as the Hymns and anthem piece.  They made a wonderful contribution to the service.

In addition to the instrumentalists, we had a core group of the children’s choir sing as well.  It is always fun having the children participate in the service.

I am blessed to have such a great group of instrumentalists and singers.  They all work very hard and take great pride in doing their best.  I thank all of them for their dedication and patience.

Christmas Eve will bring out some instruments and singers once again.  I love that service as it ranges from lively pieces with the brass, such as “Joy to the World” to the calm candle-lit sanctuary echoing the very peaceful “Silent Night.”  I will have an opportunity to sing a personal favorite, “O Holy Night,” for that service as well.

Below are links to the musical pieces from Sunday’s service.  The first three are my arrangements, which the group does a great job of bringing to life!
